My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for womens global empowerment fund, Denver, CO, USA
WGEF makes a difference in the lives of women all across the globe, every day. While WGEF's main impact is in northern Uganda, WGEF has personally affected my life as a young woman in America. I had the privilege to intern with WGEF as an undergraduate student at the University of Colorado Denver. WGEF taught me that everyone has a powerful vision of what their life can become. With just a little encouragement and an opportunity to realize this vision, it can come true. After working with WGEF and witnessing so many phenomenal women rise above life's obstacles, I was inspired to go to law school to fight for social and environmental justice. I just completed my program with a certificate in environmental law and will serve as a clerk at the Hawai'i Supreme Court. I truly would not be the woman I am today without WGEF and its Founder and Director, Karen Sugar. For that I am forever grateful.
