When more women work, economies grow. An increase in female labor force participation—or a reduction in the gap between women’s and men’s labor force participation—results in faster economic growth
In many parts of the world, women are not active participants of the social and economic life of the society, resulting not only in a contraction in the economic growth but also contributing to a range of other social issues – from an increase in infant mortality rate to a stagnation in intellectual advancement. Empowering women with education and skills improvement programs is the best antidote to these negative effects and the most effective way to help women achieve their full potential.
So far, Embrace Relief has provided jobs and skill training for women in Haiti, Kenya, and the United States. Dozens of girls have successfully graduated from sewing and dressmaking courses in Kenya, which allowed them to get out of the poor economic conditions they found themselves in. Also, we've utilized artisanal craft of the Haitian women to create beautiful handmade jewelry and clothing to support them economically. In the United States, Embrace Relief has provided vocational training in e-commerce for women, teaching them how to sell products on eBay and launch their own business.Donate for women's empowerment today!
