Women make up more than half of the global population, yet in many countries, they still need to fight to gain opportunities, influence, and control over their own lives. The United Nations found that women are severely underrepresented in government and business leadership roles, and on average they are paid less than men for the same jobs.
Investing in the empowerment of women is not just a moral imperative but a strategic move toward fostering sustainable development and societal progress. When we empower women to achieve, we unlock their immense potential and create a more prosperous and more equitable society.

Sustainable Entrepreneurship through Eggs and Dairy (S.E.E.D.)
In many parts of the world, women have difficulty ensuring a reliable source of food. By providing them with goats and chickens, not only does this ensure a regular access to milk and eggs, but gives women something to sell in local markets. You can provide goats and chickens today to a family in need in Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, and Afghanistan.Donate Now
