Women Thrive Named "One of the Best"

The renowned Catalogue for Philanthropy has recently announced that Women Thrive Worldwide is “one of the best nonprofits in the Washington, D.C. region” for 2012. The honor is given to charities that have been selected for “excellence, cost-effectiveness, and impact,” says Barbara Harman, President and Editor of the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington.

This award shows that you can invest in us with confidence, and that every dollar you donate stretches further to help women farmers lift themselves and their families out of poverty. For more information on Women Thrive's latest honor, please click here. 

If you are interested in helping Women Thrive do more, check out our new project fighting gender based violence (GBV). Violence is an issue that affects women and girls worldwide, and is particularly harmful for rural women farmers. If women are not safe in the fields, marketplaces, or even in their own homes, they will be unable to effectively use the agricultural resources that aid programs provide. Violence must be stopped to truly eradicate hunger and poverty.  

Thank you for all your support!
