Because of the outpouring of support, Women for Women International was chosen as one of the Top 25 in the American Express Members Project out of nearly 1,200 projects!
Women for Women International’s Help Women and Children Survivors of War Rebuild project is now in the running to receive part of $2.5 million in grants. The Winning Project will receive $1.5 Million in funding, the 2nd Place Project: $500,000; the 3rd Place Project: $300,000; and the remaining two Finalist Projects will receive $100,000 each. As I write to you, we are currently ranked #5!
This funding could be life changing. It could mean the chance to enroll the women who still wait in long lines in the DR Congo… the chance to expand our farming initiatives beyond Rwanda and Sudan so more women learn to earn a living… or the chance to give more women access to microcredit loans to start their own business.
