I have witnessed the creation of this organization from the ground up and am extremely impressed with both its mission and the leadership and vision of its founders. It is for these reasons that I agreed to serve on the Board of Directors and make donations of my own this worthy cause.
We have been fortunate in knowing Heather for many years. We are very proud of her drive and commitment to WEI and its objectives. We are amazed by the energy and and dedication that Heather has put into creating WEI and striving to have a positive impact on the lives of a group of women in a country far removed from us in the USA. We plan on continuing to support WEI in whatever way we can and would encourage everyone to support WEI through whatever means possible.
On a weekly basis our financial advisory firm gets to see WEI in action and discuss the various business aspects of WEI with Heather Murphy, one of the founders of WEI. We are always impressed at the detailed planning that goes into making WEI happen. Management of this organization is going to be key to reaching out to the largest number of women in need in India. We need more organizations like this and more people like Heather willing to act on their compassion toward needy individuals.
I was so touched by the courage and energy shown by this organization in helping widows make their own way. This organization has it right! By making loans and grants and helping women set up their own support systems - and then promoting the "Pay It Forward" concept - the women will be able to provide support int he future. Very professional and responsive organization.
