Women's Global is an incredible organization that has been bringing hope, economic development and education to post-conflict Uganda. The women who are clients of WGEF are nothing short of awe-inspiring in their dedication to improving their lives and the lives of those around them. With the support of WGEF's loans and the newly established literacy program, these women are a new force for sustainable economic, health and education development in northern Uganda. I'm proud to be part of an organization that is empowering women realize their own potential and then use that potential to impact change in our world.

Women's Global Empowerment Fund is one of those organizations that you just NEED to be a part of. It's a group of people who inspire you to be the best YOU possible,who remind you that others in need aren't a problem but a responsibilty. Seeing your efforts change Women's lives is humbling...WGEF does an amazing job of focusing on the successes achieved in Uganda rather than the crisis that still remains. Helping these Women find their voice- their independence- their capability, is nothing short of awe inspiring and I am proud to be involved with an organization of this magnitude.

The Great!

After a friend told me wonderful things about Women's Global Empowerment Fund, I decided to accept her invitation to join the Resource Development Committee. I have been impressed by the mission, the staff, the results, the other volunteers and the passionate founder and director, Karen Sugar. It's amazing to me that our average loan of only $57 can help lift a woman in Uganda out of the cycle of extreme poverty when she joins with other woman to start a business. It's unbelievable to me that out of the 1,300 loans we have given out so far, ALL of them have been repaid without default! This program is working, and it's working well. It's changing lives in post-conflict Uganda, and I'm proud to be a part of it.

The Great!

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

seeing a room full of powerful women at our recent event who were all touched and/or moved to tears by the images in our video, the personal stories of our Director, and the plea for support by one of our Board Members.

I have recently become involved with this group and am incredibly impressed with the comprehensive mission and the energy and effectiveness of the people involved. Not only does it provide micro-loans to women in Gulu, Uganda, but it also provides literacy services and other critical services for women in the area. All of the board members and volunteers are very passionate about the organization and work together effectively to further the fundraising efforts, spread the word in the local Colorado community, and achieve the mission.

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

go a long way towards solving the poverty crisis among women in Uganda.

I joined the board of WGEF last year and am now serving as the board chair. This organization is doing a wonderful job of not only providing loans to women in Northern Uganda but also giving them the opportunity to learn. WGEF's classes in literacy, Non-violent gender training, peer counseling all have broadened the women's skills and experience. In addition, the loan fund has given them the ability to improve their economic life. The loans and the education have spread to the extended community and are creating systemic change, not only in the women's lives but those of their children and husbands. It is an exceptional organization.

The Great!

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

the stories of the women whom it has helped; in the stories of the children whom it has helped; in the stories of the community competitions which have helped build the women's self esteem and the community's return to health.
