I have been involved with WEI since its inception... and I can say that Heather and her subordinates,give their all, dedicate their time and energies and their personal time and resource to the benefit and creation of WEI. Their vision began as a personal quest to make things different for those women around the world who find themselves widowed. After research and travel to the most remote areas of India, she (Heather) found that she could assist the women and thier small children. She does not enable, rather gives these women the tools to create their own destiny! An empowering position for any woman! Heather and her team train women in skills that allow them to make valuable and important decisions for their loved ones! They become self sufficient and able to support their children, a gift in any society or economic class. Heather has single handedly met with many potential supporters and been seen on local television expressing very accurately the need for all to become aware of the world and to do what we can, as individuals and groups to make the world a better place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the good that can come from a small organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand their fund raisers to larger groups of people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the commmraderie of a small group and the dedication to their vision to chage the world.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very concerned about those women in the world and what they, no matter how minimal could accomplish.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

educate,train, thousands of women in several countires, reaching a specific goal to empower widows and single moms with less opportunities in the world.

Ways to make it better...

more resources available to the group.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding activites in a very tough economic time.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Heather has totally sacrificed all monetary rewards for herself, even placing further education at this time to assist these women in India, she is truly an altrustic young woman. She has chosen to work up fromt his small beginning rather than join a large organziation to be sure all funds, assist go directly to the women in need, she pays her own pay for trips to India, to facilitate her plans for them, She is innovative, and willing to go out on a limb, to do all necessary to advance the womens education and skill levels. She attempts to network and go wherever she can to get even small amounts just to move forward, for the children she has met and the women who are counting on her

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the down to earth at ground level that Heather and her Vice President work, it is evident they are young professionals with a passion to help very desperate women feed their children

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

warm gentle people of a very altrustic nature similar goals and ideals

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could move forward with plans to set up schools, housing and skills training centers for widows in their villages, provide water resources, health teaching to prevent disease, housing instead of shacks, teach children health skills

This program is truly giving and a wonderful way to promote development in and out of the United States. Heather puts everything into the support of these women and development in positive ways in India. Not only is she supporting these women to independently support themselves and their families, she is doing so in a way that does not disturb the natural system of culture or economics that is present in the society. By providing opportunities with sewing machines and start up money for small out of home businesses WEI is creating a great effect in a positive way without changing the outsider society around it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the pure dedication and enjoyment I've seen demonstrated about their mission statement and how to accomplish it.
