Due to increased security concerns in many of the countries Women for Women International work in, it is important for them to take security measures to protect the women in the program. We fully respect the security of the women we sponsor, and therefore won't be sharing any photos or personal details which may compromise their safety, unless they have given us specific permission.
Our sister from Rwanda has completed her life changing, one year training. After the training, women in Rwanda have reported changes in 4 crucial areas:
- Women earn and save money: Women report average personal earnings of $0.88 per day at graduation, compared to $0.38 at enrollment.
- Women develop health and well-being: 95 percent of participants report practicing family planning at graduation, compared to 83 percent at enrollment.
- Women influence decisions in the home and community: Nearly 100 percent of participants report participating in household financial decisions at graduation, compared to 96 percent at enrollment.
- Women create and connect to networks for support and advocacy: More than 87 percent of participants report sharing information about their rights with other women at graduation, compared to 15 percent at enrollment.
Sponsorship of this sister was made possible by PicassoHR who gave their clients a special candle in honor of their 15th anniversary. The glass candles came beautifully etched and were fragranced with Plum & Patchouli.
