We dream of a world where women and girls have the resources and opportunities they need to reach their full potential, live free from violence, and of course, live their dreams.
By empowering women and girls through access to education and skills training, the lives of individuals, families, and whole communities can be improved. Women are economically empowered when they have control over their own finances and wellbeing, and when they have a voice in the financial decisions to shape their lives and the lives of their families. Women are socially empowered when they have a personal sense of autonomy, self-confidence, and the power to control their private and public lives.
