Review for WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a proud volunteer for WGEF for nearly five years. I have had the opportunity to see the organization's missions and values transform the lives of women in Northern Uganda. From surveys to face-to-face interactions with the women who benefit from the organization I can see a true sense of empowerment in the women. This transformation has spread to the families and communities surrounding the women-allowing for the voices of women to be heard. As a result of this empowerment and their financial improvements, women are being treated to equally to men and are having the ability to provide food, medications, and education for their families.

Review for WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began my internship with WGEF as a basic class project and fell in love with the organization. I have been interning ever since (over two years now). WGEF is what a grassroots organization is made out to be. While many nonprofits go in with a detailed plan of problems and solutions, WGEF serves the women in Northern Uganda by listening to what their needs and interests are. The director, Karen Sugar, has inspired me by her commitment and dedication to this mission.
