Reviews for Women Global Empowerment Fund

Rating: 5 stars  

I was introduced to Karen Sugar and WGEF at an event in Denver. I was immediately drawn to her enthusiasm, dedication and determination to help women in Gulu. I loved the idea of supporting women in their entrepreneurial endeavours. The success of these women is inspiring and exciting. My family and I were moved by the stories of women making a difference in their lives and the lives of their family and community. Thank you WGEF and Karen...what you are doing is making us realize how interconnected we all are!

I usually fonate to several charities a year, but this one really stood out to me as how it can make a difference. I donated to a friends charity run race for this fund and have been following it ever since. I have done some volunteer work in other countries but reading about some of the stories really made it seem like people are making a difference.

My husband and I have made the decision to allocate a great portion of our annual charitable budget to Women's Global Empowerment Fund because of the organization's grassroots efforts and results in assisting the women and families of Gulu, Uganda. Most important to us in the organization's mission is the idea of providing the tools and support for the borrowing clients to sustainably create a pathway to success. I am so proud of what Women's Global has achieved so quickly and truly look forward to following its success and that of its clients for years to come.

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

following its progress via quarterly newsletters. I have also successfully garnered support for WGEF from my church, which has chosen the organization as its non-profit of choice.

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

create awareness nationally and internationally for Women's Global Empowerment Fund
