Education is the foundation of breaking cycles of poverty.
Generational change occurs when a woman earns her own income.
To bring about lasting change for disadvantaged women and children by investing in their health, education, and employment opportunities.
The facts are undeniable, if you wish to raise a community out of poverty then you must invest in its women and children. By doing so, you not only alter the trajectory of the individuals you serve, but also future generations to come.
Women spend almost three times as much money on their family’s well-being compared to men. With this in mind, we develop programs that support the people who are most likely to affect generational change, and thereby break recurring cycles of poverty.
