Mission Statement

Empower the poor by giving them the ability to direct and finance their own education.

Description

Village women of Little World Community Organization in Pakistan use 100% of the money from the sale of hand embroidered greeting cards to end poverty with education. Five dollars is the cost for one person to attend an LWCO school for one year.

Thousands of village women have learned in LWCO schools to be teachers. Inspired by hope, they often learn to read and write in one year. They also learn to make beautiful and creative crafts like this card to sell, supporting their schools and opening new schools. Today there are 3000 students in 30 village schools and dozens of requests for more. LWCO nutures communities at their roots by teaching that to help others is how to help ourselves.

You can join LWCO by volunteering. Your help is needed.
