Give Women A Voice
One year of training
Catholic Relief Services-USCCB
Many women and people in impoverished regions do not have basic human rights or a voice in community affairs. This means they often don’t have access to education, job opportunities or even essential services to help their families. The result is that the cycle of poverty continues to dominate the lives of thousands of innocent and vulnerable people.
Your gift will help improve local human rights laws in 238 villages of rural Orissa, one of the least developed states in India. This project strengthens the voice of women, young people and grassroots groups in community-level planning. It also trains and supports local leaders so they can help their communities by improving the delivery of essential services. Your most generous gift of $106 will train one village for one year.
