Skills for 25 women
American Refugee Committee
In most conflict and post-conflict settings, the burden of caring for a family can fall entirely upon women. Men go to war, and often they won’t return. Women – already accustomed to managing the home – become a family’s sole breadwinner. To support their families, women may need to learn a new skill or how to run a small business. Without those tools it can be hard to make ends meet.
Your donation changes everything for a woman and her family. Small business and skills training, coupled with a small loan or grant, makes an immeasurable impact. A mother can start a small business that feeds her family and clothes her kids. She can send them to school and give them the chance for a better future. Where else can you get a gift that changes the future for a woman and her kids and grandkids after her. It’s a special gift for your special friend or loved one.
