Dear Friends,
As 2011 comes to a close, we want to thank you - our supporters, donors, volunteers and advocates. You are the driving force behind our movement and the lifeblood of our mission.  We are proud to share with you the WomensTrust 2010 Annual Report.

We've made great strides over the past eight years toward fulfilling our mission: to empower women and girls in Pokuase, Ghana - through microenterprise, education, and healthcare - and to inspire others to do the same elsewhere. Our report highlights the results of our work over our last fiscal year and the positive impact we've made in the lives of thousands of women and girls in Pokuase. Below is a quick glance at some of the news highlighted in this year's report. To view the full report, please visit our website www.womenstrust.org or click the link provided below.

We cannot make progress without your help.  Please empower women and girls to build better futures for themselves by donating to WomensTrust today.

With Gratitude,
The WomensTrust Team

Microfinance
Last year we introduced you to Sarah Ankrah, WomensTrust EntrepreneursClub member and owner of Phipha's Bakery. We are happy to report this past year Sarah was able to acquire a vehicle thanks to her loan through WomensTrust. Sarah has been an exceptional client, and through her growing business has been able to hire and mentor several other women within the community.

Education
How a WomensTrust Scholarship Helped Me, By Rita Nyadzro
When I had the opportunity to benefit from the WomensTrust scholarship, it helped me in many ways. I thought I would have to halt schooling because my father passed away and my mother would not be able to support my education. Today, I am a Senior High School graduate, because of the kind courtesy of a WomensTrust Scholarship.

Healthcare
A native of Ghana's neighboring country Cote d'Ivoire, Healthy Living Skills Program (HLSP) Coordinator Magbe Savane developed a health education program for WomensTrust. Magbe did extensive interviews with practitioners and local residents to identify the community's primary health concerns. Based on that research, Magbe focused the Healthy Living Skills curriculum on nutritional counseling and family planning.
