Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower women with tools to work their way out of poverty, care for their families, and strengthen their communities. Women's Empowerment International (WE) assists impoverished women through global partnerships that offer microloans, training and support to start businesses. WE was founded in San Diego in 2006 and is currently building toward greater impact with the leadership of our Executive Director and dedicated Board of Directors.

Description

WE assists poor women entrepreneurs seeking to improve their lives here in San Diego and in five countries around the world. We believe that when women have access to the tools to earn a living, lives change. In 2018, WE's Board undertook a comprehensive strategic planning process resulting in the setting of ambitious growth goals to enable us to assist more determined women. Today, WE supports women in California, Mexico, Honduras, Haiti and Uganda. In 2019, we intend to add two new partnerships to our partner portfolio to assist more struggling women in San Diego and support the women-led recovery in Puerto Rico. WE has raised more than $2M to date and seeks to double our funding to poor women by 2020.
