why we are passionate about providing economic opportunities
to empower women WORLDWIDE:
Women spend 90% of earned income on families, while men spend only 30-40%. Anecdotally, we have seen time and again the power of innovation in the hands of women who are given opportunity. Supporting women in business ventures small and large not only ensures security for their families, but also has the potential to lift entire communities out of poverty. When women survive childbirth, receive an education, and are given opportunity for economic empowerment, everyone wins.
