This International Women’s Day, 5 organizations that empower women

 

It’s no secret that, around the world, life can be inordinately difficult for women. From violence to unequal pay to limited access to land ownership, women face unique challenges.

At HOPE International, we believe in the inherent dignity and worth of women, and we’re grateful to be one of many organizations that are working to remove barriers for women around the world. This International Women’s Day, we invite you to explore these other organizations that are working for women’s equality around the world.

Of the approximately 40 million human trafficking victims around the world, an estimated 71 percent are female. That’s why She is Safe is committed to the prevention, rescue, and restoration of trafficking victims in Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.

Without access to the maternal care they need, more than 800 women die each year from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth—many of which are treatable. Every Mother Counts works to create awareness about women’s health challenges and to fund local organizations that improve the health of women in developing countries.

Opportunity International

Globally, women are less likely to be formally employed—and when they are, they are likely to be paid less than their male colleagues. To help women succeed, Opportunity International and other microfinance organizations provide capital and training to help women develop businesses.

Imagine Goods

When women are rescued from trafficking, they remain vulnerable to return to bondage if they aren’t able to find sufficient work. Enter Imagine Goods, a Pennsylvania-based organization that employs rescued women to create handmade clothing, jewelry, and more.
