Women for Women International

By: Dawn in Feminizzle

A BUST must! May 11th is Mother’s Day. Forget the flowers and sappy greeting cards. This year, change it up with a Mother's Day gift donation to Women for Women International. Founded in 1993, Women for Women International works to end the abuse women in war-torn regions around the world endure by helping them transform their lives.

This is no hand-out. Women for Women International provides financial and emotional support, rights awareness and job skills training so the women in our programs can become confident, active citizens. We help women like Elizabeth, who endured beatings from her husband and father because she wouldn't allow them to marry off her primary school-aged daughter just so they could collect the dowry. Elizabeth was cast out of her family and left penniless with 6 children. Today, with the help of Women for Women International, she has a job that allows her to give her daughter the education she deserves. Join us this Mother's Day in honoring Elizabeth and the special women in your life with a Mother's Day Gift donation.

Check out their site now. Together we can change the world one woman at a time!
