Raising Women’s Voices

Poverty affects both men and women. But when it comes to securing a bright future, women face more challenges.

Women are often expected to manage their households. That includes raising children, cooking, getting water and other daily tasks. But too often they do not have the resources they need to succeed. They are less likely to be able to finish school or build careers. Their rights are less likely to be upheld.

Through CWS programs around the world, women are rising to meet these challenges. They are going to school and learning to read and write. They are building businesses and expanding enterprises. They are putting food on the table and providing for their children.

When women rise, they take their families and their communities with them. And we're here to help them as they do it.
