Our programs and services include training, consultancy, and direct support to individual women, groups and organizations.

We are certified as a domestic nonprofit corporation under NC state law.  We provide programs and services that target the five dimensions of female empowerment and opportunity:

1. Economic participation
2. Economic opportunity
3. Political empowerment
4. Educational attainment
5. Health and well-being

One of the things that set us apart from other development organiations is that we work in the areas where the people seem to have been forgotten. We are in those areas where there are no cameras and the roads are treacherous. We support local organizations and humanitarians in their efforts to advance these communities and we work help build local microenterprises. Our focus is from the groun up, not top down, we do not go into any community and project our vision. Rather, we help to facilitate the shared vision of the people we serve. We have no large grants, no major donor, we are driven by individual donors and volunteer labor.
