After spending almost a year studying community development in East Africa, my view of the kind of work that was effective, sustainable and empowering became very narrow. WGEF is one of these inspiring organizations that keeps me motivated and optimistic about non-profit aid and our ability to impact the lives of others across the globe. Karen, the ED, and the others that work for WGEF really put their ears to the ground, and have created a program in response to the needs of the community. The women in Uganda who participate take pride and ownership in their own growth, success and ability to provide for their families and communities in way they never could before. In this way, it really is the Women's Global EMPOWERMENT Fund.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
many aspects of my personal and professional growth and understanding.
