Childhood pal, and now cross-country Facebook friend, Charlotte Klein, recently made me aware of a vitally important organization, Women for Women International.
The organization’s mission is startlingly simple: “In countries affected by conflict and war, Women for Women International supports the most marginalized women to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, she is able to create sustainable change for herself, her family, and community.”
If you’re not familiar with this essential organization, I urge you to learn about it. Effecting change at the most “grass roots” level in poverty-torn and war-torn countries around the world is one small way in which each of us can make a difference.
So please go to www.womenforwomen.org and support it in any way you can…like it, share it, contribute. Thanks!
