Studies show that when women are empowered and earn an income, they spend 90% of it on their families on things like education, health and food. Through educating and training one woman, she can lift herself, her family and her community out of hunger and poverty.
Our goal is for men and women to come together and raise funds to empower, educate and train women to end hunger and poverty in their communities globally.
We invest in women through activities such as:
Maternal and Child Health – giving mothers and babies access to quality healthcare and nutrition
Ending Child Marriage – keeping girls in school so they can reach their full potential
Microfinance – giving women access to microfinance and financial literacy training to start a business and be financially independent
Unleashing the potential of Kiwis to make a difference.
Join us, together we can change the world.

Train 4 Elected Women in India to be effective local council members and ban child marriage in their villages; or
Provide 16 women with microfinance loans and financial literacy training so they can start small businesses, earn an income, and support their families.
