This series was inspired by the new vision of world philanthropy where organizations who once provided ubiquitous aid packages are now giving direct assistance to women and girls in those same communities. Why? Because when these women raise the standard of living for their own families, they collectively elevate the entire community. Join us for the series and be inspired by these dynamic speakers.
