Because I strongly believe that we as women are one of the most powerful influences of our family, we must obtain education and resources that will enable us take care of ourselves financially. This will allow us to raise educated children that have values, principle's and standards. If we do not have these resource's available to us, then unfortunately we all suffer.
Women for Women International
Women for Women International helps women whose lives have been torn apart by war and conflict to rebuild their lives. They do this by providing financial and emotional support, job skills training, rights awareness, leadership education, and access to business skills, capital, and markets. They begin by working with women who may have lost everything and often have nowhere else to turn with there families. Their one-year program launches women on a journey from victim to survivor to active citizen. As part of the program, Women for Women International matches each woman in the program with a “sister” – a sponsor who provides money for basic necessities such as food, clean water, medicine, school fees, or seed money for projects to earn an income. Sponsors and their sisters also exchange letters. For a woman who may have lost everything or who feels isolated, letters of support often renew her hope for a better future. After twelve months, Women for Women International helps “graduates” obtain loans and other resources they need as they continue to strive for greater social, economic, and political participation in their communities.
