Programs

A Global Friendship is an international non-profit that works towards empowering women and poverty alleviation. We create economic opportunities for women in developing regions by helping them build small business skills and giving them access to an international market. Investing in women helps improve labor productivity, creates economic growth and helps them come out of the 'poverty trap'. We travel around the world to find women who are willing to work towards improving their communities. We help them identify business skills, predominantly traditional craft techniques, merge them with contemporary designs and then sell their products in boutiques in the US and the Caribbean. Proceeds are then re-invested in the same communities. We strive towards imminent community development, working at the grassroots level and making local economies more sustainable. We treat these women as a part of our family. Our partnerships consist of reciprocity, shared values and respect. We strongly believe that empowering these women would help them contribute more towards improving their lives and the communities they live in.
