Support our work

Through our programmes, we support women to beat the odds and succeed by setting up and running their own businesses on their own terms – lifting their families above the poverty line. Here’s how you can help us. 


Your one-off or monthly donation will give women entrepreneurs the skills and confidence to beat the odds and launch their own microbusinesses – lifting whole families out of poverty.
