We place women at the center of our work, creating the services, tools and networks they need to breakthrough complex and entrenched situations of poverty and hunger. The purpose of our partnerships--spanning financial services, health, and agriculture--is to create sustainable solutions that can be broadly implemented to improve the lives of women and families living in poor, rural communities.
Here you can find examples of that impact for select projects.
