Refugee women often face additional barriers than their male counterparts in resettlement. Cultural norms might inhibit them from branching outside of household duties. Women worldwide have lower literacy and education opportunities. Many have large families or are single moms.
The Women's Empowerment Program offers training in computers, nutrition, leadership development, sewing, and more. These classes boost confidence, offer socialization, and teach a skill that will help them learn a new trade and earn money.
Your gift will give refugee women access to programs like sewing classes, computer training, and nutrition classes.
