Why Women?

Why are we helping Women? Here are some of the stats.

  •  Woman’s income more likely than a man’s to go toward food, education, medicine, and other family needs.
  •  Women in many countries make important family decisions about nutrition, healthcare, and use of resources.
  • One girl in seven in developing countries marries before the age of 15.
  • Children have a 14 times higher chance of dying in first year of life without a mother. 
  • Women contribute to economic growth; their UNPAID work at home and on the farm equals about 1/3 of global GDP.
