Mission Statement

We are committed to compassionately serve the poorest people and communities worldwide through a network of women, raising awareness and funds to support the elimination of extreme poverty.


We are an organization founded by women seeking to make a greater contribution to the world. We focus on raising funds and awareness to help women pull themselves out of poverty, knowing that when women are helped, they help their families and their communities. In our first 15 years of operation, we have provided over 18,000 micro loans to help women start small businesses and work their way out of poverty in Uganda, East Africa.
