I just wanted to share an article featuring our work from the perspective of one of our amazing partners, Humaira, that appeared recently in the Women in the World Foundation (link below).
Here is a section that I thought you would be most interested in:
“In just a few weeks, presidents, prime ministers and heads of state from around the globe will converge on New York City for the UN General Assembly, where the talk will undoubtedly be of unrest in Egypt, food shortages in Africa, and violence in Central America.
But one group will be making sure the gathered decision-makers focus on a population whose well-being could determine the fate of the world: women. Since 1998, the nonprofit Women Thrive Worldwide has successfully lobbied policy makers in Washington, D.C. and in foreign countries to meet the needs of women, who constitute the majority of the planet's poor and six in ten of the hungry."
Please listen more about our work through Women Thrive's interview with Humaira (link below).
With your support, Women Thrive and our partners are making huge strides in lifting the voice of women and girls worldwide. Thank you once again for your support.
