Women Empowerment

Our Goal

To build the capacity of women to support themselves and end generational poverty.

Our Reality

The Problem

Born into poverty, vulnerable women struggle to shake off the shackles perpetuated by sick cultural practices, discrimination, and gender biases.

Society has for long thought less of women. Instead of taking a girl child to school, they are forced into early marriages.

At every turn, lies another obstacle waiting to keep the woman down. Because of this, a whole society is kept recycling poverty, from one generation to another.

Even with the odds against them, the African woman continues to be the pillar of their homes. Reduced to begging or working low-paying odd jobs, many women have to face some of the harshest human conditions to put food on their tables and keep their families afloat.
