Social Change Projects
$568 billion spent on aid to Africa, and yet the typical African country is no richer today than 40 years ago… Economic development happens, not through aid, but through the homegrown efforts of entrepreneurs and social and political reformers.

The Women Worldwide Initiative reaches out to NGOs working with women and girls in developing countries to design innovative and sustainable projects around their greatest need.
- We believe in sustainable development and the power of youth and women.
- We stick to “what works” by contacting NGOs and communities to find out what they need and work with them to propose solutions for lasting change.
- Our projects are strongly connected with local members of the communities we serve, as true change can only come from within.
- We direct our energy and money to effective projects – or to make great programs more effective nationally and internationally.
