"My husband has lost his job and my small business supports are entire family. This training and platform is enabling me to not only gain confidence, but pay my bills," said Maria (name changes for privacy purposes)
We have been training 200 women entrepreneurs in marketing, sales, and networking. We recently held exhibitions showcasing curated work of 20 women for sale in the two major consulates to roaring success.
We are particularly encouraging them to sell each other's products, to support one another and work in teams.
We now wish to train them in packaging, supply chain and thereafter online sales.
Its magnificent to see the leaps and bounds they are making.

Girls & Gold
By Rukhsana - Project Leader
Women and girls are renowned for loving Jewelery. When one hears the words gold and girls, most people immediate think jewelry and accessories, not education.
However, gold and education go hand-in-hand in the Pakistan as gold medals are given out to the top student academically in each class. Connecting Pakistani girls with gold medals instead of just gold earrings is more than motivating, it's groundbreaking.
That is why it's so important to sponsor medals for female top students so that they can showcase their success, their academic prowess, visibly.
Thank you for supporting us to strengthen the self esteem of Pakistani girls and to spotlight their academic achievements this way.

Thanks to all of you and your generosity, we are getting close to completing fundraising on Phase 2 of the project - building a solar electricity run medical clinic in a community without a hospital that needs nearby medical care. We have just $9,000 left to raise to close Phase 2 funding and installing the clinic.
Two years after category 5 hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, hotels are opening and tourists are returning. This is wonderful news, but more than ever, being prepared in important.
This clinic's purpose to bring medical help closer to more people. It creates resilient communities but most importantly saves lives by ensuring medical help is nearby.
Medical emergencies cannot be planned, and we are determined through Phase 2 to ensure safe, easily accessible medical help. Thank you for all your help. We are now near the home stretch. Together, let's make a difference.
