Women's Empowerment

WCCN Donors and Investors Help Women Support their Families

Central to WCCN’s women’s empowerment initiatives is the belief that women deserve the opportunity to pull themselves out of poverty. They have the right to own land, to obtain an education, to be producers, to have adequate healthcare, and to provide for themselves and their families without the threat of violence.

Demonstrating our commitment to women, more than two-thirds of our partner agencies clients are women.  These women are starting their own businesses and expanding their farms all with the dream of securing a better, healthier, future for themselves, their children, and family.
