WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL
January 14, 2012

The founder of W4W is an amazing human being, and I don’t know how/ where she finds energy and inspiration with so much despair, war, and illnesses around her. I’m very happy what her work and that of her organization has achieved. I’ve sponsored 10 sisters with W4W since 2008, and have corresponded with all of them. I’ve also received their information and a summary when each woman completes her yr of training. I’ve written letters and sent photos as well. I never had issues with payments. W4W’s goal is to assist women (education, learn a skill to earn income, and thus impact their communities) and not for them to become pen pals with sponsors. Remember that most cannot write, which require someone else to do for them (who must know English and other “sponsor language”), which in turn is time consuming. I rather see them use the time for their education than to write me. Sometimes sponsors make the assumption that everyone speaks and write English; far from it. Remember that those women live in survival mode every single day.
