WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND
June 24, 2013

As a volunteer for more than 5 years, I have had the opportunity to be involved and see the impacts of WGEF's work. The grassroots model of WGEF goes above and beyond to address the true causes of poverty and empower its participants. Looking forward, WGEF continues to be strong in Uganda and is now expanding its work to Haiti. Working with a local Haitian organization, WGEF will empower women in rural Haiti areas through agricultural training, leadership development, literacy programs, and eventually, microcredit. It's an exciting time to be part of and supporting this great organization!

WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND
June 5, 2012

I first became involved in Women's Global in 2008 as a graduate student after discovering them upon returning abroad-I was looking for an grassroots organization that worked. What attracted me to Women's Global was their model: a credit-plus model that not only provided credit to women but provided them other tools simultaneously, giving them a tool box of resources that empowered them. I have remained involved in the organizations since and had the opportunity to travel to Gulu, Uganda for a month to help evaluate the program's success and participate in the dental clinic. This only affirmed what I already knew, that Women's Global was making a profound difference in these women's lives.
