WomensTrust meets my desire to invest in microfinance initiatives for poor women in Ghana, one of Africa's most promising democraices.My philanthropy budget is very limited so it is important for me that any organization I give to is able to provide solid evidence of accomplishment. WomensTrust has consistently impressed me with their communications to donors and the level of detail they provide on the small loans - and basic business skills - they extend to women that then allow them and their families to rise above bare subsistence for the first time in their lives through such enterprises as baking, textile sales, food kiosks etc. I am also pleased they cover school fees for many girls who otherwise would not be educated in Africa's male-oriented society.

Attending informational meetings, speaking with staff and receiving ongoing print updates.
