Celebrate International Women’s Day with World Hope International!

Did you know that women do 2.6 times more unpaid care and domestic work than men? That one in three women are likely to face violence in their lifetimes, and that public services and systems are seldom built with women in mind? In fact, a recent article from The Guardian shows the disturbing consequences of the ways that women continue to go unseen.

At World Hope, we believe in empowering women and work to provide them with tools, resources, and opportunity.  Sometimes that means working with a community to gain safe access to clean water; sometimes it looks like collaborating on an enterprise like mushroom farming or greenhouses or selling ice. It looks like anti-trafficking activism and providing trauma care, finding ways to keep girls in school, and building resiliency and providing emergency response in disaster-prone communities, where women and children so often bear the brunt of fallout.

We are working every day to empower women and girls around the world – and we want to hear from you, too! Whether they are women and girls close to home or far away, what are you doing to #EmpowerHer?

Empowering Hope in the Bahamas
