IRaise For Women Empowerment

“If You Educate a Woman, You Educate a Nation.”

Whether it be conflict zones, displacement camps, or impoverished communities, a constant remains: When living conditions worsen for entire communities, they worsen at even higher rates for women.

In destitute circumstances, many women are left widowed, making them the sole providers for their children and families. Their hardships are made even more severe given a limited female presence in the labor market coupled with limited education and work experience.

 

We Need YOUR Help

We envision a better world for her: Our SHERO … the woman, who against all odds, strives and thrives. Will you help us make that a reality?

$1,000 can help build programs that will provide resources to help women build businesses for themselves

$250 can support efforts to build deep-water wells so that women and girls don’t have to walk for hours each day to get water

$25 can provide medical supplies for maternal care programs

Please donate now and show our sisters in need that they are not alone.

“If You Educate a Woman, You Educate a Nation.”

Whether it be conflict zones, displacement camps, or impoverished communities, a constant remains: When living conditions worsen for entire communities, they worsen at even higher rates for women.

  • Over 2.7 billion women around the world are legally restricted from having the same jobs as men. (World Bank, 2018)
  • 80% of the time, women and girls are responsible for collecting water when access to water in their communities is limited. Their safety and hygiene management is more at risk, and this practice also restricts the time girls have to go to school. (UN Women, 2018)
  • Every day, around 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries. (World Health Organization, 2018)
  • Globally, 1 in 3 women will experience some form of gender-based violence in their lifetime. (World Health Organization, 2017)

In the face of these unbalanced and unfair circumstances, we remember this African proverb: “If you educate a man, you educate one person. If you educate a woman, you educate a nation.”

Providing opportunities and resources, whether they be educational, vocational, or basic necessities, oftentimes benefits women, their families, and their communities.

Moreover, UN Women states that empowering women is essential to establishing peace and economic stability and development across regions. Women are the world’s greatest—and oftentimes most untapped—resource.
