Our partners are the bedrock of our organisation. We operate wholly on funds, grants and donations from people and organisations. You enable us to build the road to success for the women that we sponsor. We say a huge THANK YOU to all our existing and future partners.
Empower a Woman aims to improve and change the lives of women. Our mission is to give women with little or no income the financial support they need to start a small business or to get skills/education that could lead to sustainable employment in order for them to gain some independence
Do you have a passion to help another woman succeed? Have you got skills that you can share, a business you can introduce or other ideas? Would you like to join our fundraising team? We want to hear from you. Join us today and be a part of something amazing.
It takes a special kind of woman to be passionate about seeing another woman succeed in life. And we are looking for those special women to partner with us.
As an organisation, our mission is in our name. We want to - Empower a Woman! We want to bring change into the lives of the many women who are struggling financially. In order for us to do this, we need support from women like you.
Do you know that :
A Woman would go hungry so her children can eat today
A Woman would end up homeless on the cold streets today
A Woman would sell her body just so she can feed today
A Woman would be beaten and abused by a partner today
A Woman who feels hopeless will take her own life today
These are some, but not all, of the challenges that many of women face because they lack financial stability and have no sustainable help. A lot of women are forced to rely on the goodwill of the state or of other people, but we want to give them an opportunity to rely on themselves, to unlock their hidden potential. We want to do this because we believe that investing in the life of a woman comes with long term rewards.
Can you help us help them? Your partnership could make a difference in the life of one woman, who can in turn make a difference in the life of many more.
We look forward to working together with you. With your help, we can achieve so much more. Thank you!
