MARYLAND WOMENS HERITAGE CENTER AND MUSEUM INC
October 6, 2013

When I walk into The Maryland Women's Heritage Center I immediately feel connected to inspiring women's stories. The inclusiveness of featured women of diverse backgrounds, talents and accomplishments engages the public to value women's contributions throughout our state's history and provides positive role models for all who enter. The Center also serves as a convenient venue for retreats and meetings. Participants marvel at the breadth of educational opportunities to learn about women who settled and nurtured our state in earlier centuries to contemporary women leaders. MWCH mission of putting HER story into History to make Our story is vital to develop strong women and girl leaders. Men and boys visiting the MWHC benefit, as well. Learning of women's accomplishments in the past and present facilitates a more inclusive future of shared leadership. The current "Women of NASA Goddard" exhibit is oustanding and the "Unsung Heroines" section is very special-anyone can submit a Maryland woman's name (and story ) who has made a difference in their life.

Empowered Women International, Inc.
June 9, 2010

I've never felt more vital than working with this amazing organization. I've witnessed Empowered Women International's (EWI)incredibly effective programs-- transform immigrant and refugee women from shy,confused, overwhelmed newcomers to confident, skilled, empowered women artisans and business entrepreneurs who are eager to fully participate and contribute to American culture and business. I'm excited to spread the word. EWI makes it's money go farther than any other organization I've ever known. Ninety-Seven percent of every dollar goes to directly benefit EWI women beneficiaries! We need to grow the Board,friends and volunteers,raise more community awareness about how life changing our programs can be. EWI needs more sustaining donors. (Even if people gave $10-$25 each month)It would make such a huge difference for EWI to serve more refugee and immigrant women who are struggling in our area. I encourage people to volunteer with EWI--At the same time you help to transform a life--your life will be transformed as well. \

The Great!

I've served on the board, coordinated and participated in benefit concerts. coached EWI women on presenting stronger body language and public speaking skills. Observed first hand as the women blossom in confidence and skills.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more funding to pay our incredible staff a respectable wage for their efforts. Secure more grants and funding for our programs in order to reach more women.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting wonderful international women and developing better understandings of different cultures and sharing ideas.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

absolutely outstanding, highly talented, motivated and sincere in their dedication to the EWI mission to empower immigrant and refugee women to a more rewarding and fulfilling life here in the U.S.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

absolutely change the world! Immigrant and refugee women fully integrating into society, raising their families in a more economically secure world, surrounded by a culturally rich heritage.

Ways to make it better...

If I had more time to share with them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding

One thing I'd also say is that...
