Empowerment is contagious. That little fire burning in you can spark off and ignite someone else. Every time you choose to chase down your potential and escape from stuck, you give those around you permission and the courage to do the same. That’s why we choose to support the following partners…to spread the fire of empowerment:
We believe in sustainable solutions. GlobalGiving provides solutions generated through innovative, grassroots projects that are working to educate children, feed the hungry, build houses and train women and men with life-changing job skills.
GlobalGiving provides individuals and groups from all over the world a chance to raise the money they need to improve their communities through micro-loans.
We believe in realizing potential. And, we believe that access to education plays a leading role in our ability to step into our potential. In many parts of the world, young women have little to no access to the education opportunities that can change their lives and their community.
Camfed is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating poverty in Africa through the education of girls and the empowerment of young women. We love their systemic approach to solving root issues rather than symptoms.
The Food Trust
We believe the choices we make about what we eat have an enormous impact on our bodies, our families, our economy and our Earth. We support The Food Trust (aka The Farmers’ Markets Trust) whose mission is to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions. Working with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers, they have developed a comprehensive approach to improved food access that combines nutrition education and greater availability of affordable, healthy food.
