Review for Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund is a vision builder. Since 2013, VGIF has contributed immensely to the development of vulnerable women and girls in Cross River State, Nigeria.
With VGIF's support, we have been able to train over 1000 women and girls in various vocational skills . Not only have numerous households been empowered but the outcomes of our VGIF assisted projects has changed the focus of some community based organizations in our area from the provision of welfare packages to household economic strengthening.
Our Better Life Opportunity for Women and Girls Project with support from VGIF is set to train another 1000 women and girls with the goal of increasing their employment opportunities and earning power.
It was quite difficult getting funding to support women with disabilities but VGIF helped to open doors for these women.
Every donation made to VGIF is touching the lives of women and girls , restoring dignity and hope, and securing the future for girls and their families.

Review for Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund is an amazing non-profit that has uplifted the status of women by getting resources to the areas where it is most needed.
Having funded our organization (Enabled to Enable) twice, I can attest that no donation made to VGIF is wasted because they are dream builders.
From the expression of gratitude of a girl who formerly lived on the streets, to the joy of a poor widow who no longer has to struggle to feed her children to school or the dance of groups of women who never had a source of income but now have acquired a skill and are earning income and the fulfilment in the heart of a blind woman who can now make her beads for a living or the young girl with low vision that can learn better because she now has basic knowledge of computer appreciation through accessible computer training, or opening doors for new partnerships, the list is endless.
Our VGIF grant originally intended to train 500 women and girls and 50 boys has trained over 1000 women and girls till date and we are still counting. VGIF is not just empowering women but investing in women, girls, their families, communities, nations and their future. Thank you VGIF and every donor, board member, staff and volunteers that make your work possible.

Review for Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund is a vision builder, a voice for grassroots women who would have otherwise remained silent.
Someone once said that when a woman is given the tools she needs to succeed, she creates a ripple effect of positive change for herself, her family and society. Growing up with a physical disability; it has always been my desire to help less fortunate women and girls and VGIF made that dream come true. With their support, 200 women and girls with and without disabilities have been economically empowered through skills acquisition training in my community and we are still counting.
VGIF has greatly built our capacity as an organization and helped us establish credibility within and outside our community.
Thank you for giving these women the opportunity to be not just great caregivers but change makers, together "empowering women one community at a time"!
