International Women’s Day

Support Community Leaders

International Women’s Day is March 8th, and provides an opportunity to raise funds to support more Community Village Leaders, expanding the reach of the work, so more vulnerable women are empowered to find dignity and hope.

A Community Village Leader is a woman who has left the illegal practice of systemic abuse, received training, and returns to her community to prevent the trafficking of vulnerable girls into the practice, and assist other women to find freedom and hope.

Every $250 funds one Community Village Leader in one village for one year.


Just $250 supports a Community Village Leader for one year in one village.
This provides women who have left systemic abuse with paid and respectable work, restoring their dignity and empowering them to reach more women in more villages and prevent more little girls from a life of pain.

We currently have Community Village Leaders in 260 villages and need to continue to support them. But we want to do more. We want to reach into more villages so more women are set free, and more little girls protected. To do this, we need to raise more increments of $250.
