Empower

When you empower a girl or a woman, she becomes a catalyst for positive change whose success benefits everyone around her--CARE

Recognizing that women can be key positive change agents, IWA funds organizations that focus on enhancing women's rights and helping women gain control over their own lives. 

The positive feedback received by IWA from other members of the local community, which includes men and women of different cultures, has strengthened the belief of IWA members of self efficacy and positive force. Our focus now is to inspire and empower marginalized women across the world in meeting their basic needs as well as in fostering awareness of their basic rights. An effective way of doing this is by providing monetary support to local and international organizations that are actively engaged in:

  • preventing endemic violence against women
  • empowering women by providing skills training and access to educational opportunities.

The fund provided to these organizations are obtained through fundraisers and donations.
