We would like to extend a special thank you to all the amazing donors that helped fund our campaign to empower Cambodian women for the environment. Thanks to your generosity and kindness, we will be able to provide these dedicated women with the resources they need to help improve their lives and the natural environment around them. We raised close to $1,300, which will provide them with the supplies and tools they need to continue their bi-monthly meetings.
During these meetings, the Women’s Committee will work to improve the lives of women by providing leadership training and promoting entrepreneurial initiatives that will lead to financial independence. They will have the opportunity to learn valuable lessons in budgeting, business management, and women's health and rights. These women also have the opportunity to apply for micro-loans that allow them to expand their businesses, and hire and employ more women. Not only do these women pay it forward by empowering their daughters and family members, but the pool of people committed to resource conservation is enlarged, children are raised with a conservation ethic, and a sustainable green economy is also realized.
On March 8th, we celebrated the 104th International Women’s Day. Wildlife Alliance promotes gender equality in all our efforts as it also aligns with our mission to promote sustainable development. We understand that women are powerful agents of change in communities. They play the primary role in food production, healthcare, household nutrition, and have specific knowledge about the natural resources they depend upon for providing for their families. Thank you again for your generous donation, you can continue to help us make a difference in the environment by supporting our new projects to Help Bring Wildlife Back to Angkor Forest or Provide Emergency Care for Lucky the Elephant. Unfortunately, Lucky our beloved elephant at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center in Cambodia has recently fallen ill and is being provided with emergency medical treatment. Learn more about how she desperately needs your help here.
