WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND
August 19, 2013

I've had the privilege of being on the board of WGEF for most of this year. I'm extremely proud to volunteer and be associated with this organization and the work it's doing. I've spent considerable time on the ground in post-conflict northern Uganda where WGEF's programs are primarily based. Despite a challenging history, the women of this region are reclaiming a hopeful story for themselves and their families. They are at the center of WGEF's programs, led by the CreditPlus model which leverages micro finance to give empowerment opportunities to women's groups in and around Gulu district. WGEF has demonstrated great success with the programs, and the clients are shining examples in their communities. WGEF has a very small "footprint" as an organization- dollars are put directly to the programs, and Ugandans are in the lead of what is happening. The support of women's empowerment programs like this are so critical in today's world and in these contexts- I hope you'll consider supporting the work of WGEF!
