Empower Women Leaders (EWL) serves and trains women leaders in developing countries by connecting, counseling, and contributing to selected initiatives/projects, which have a positive and sustainable impact.
In developing countries, including post-conflict regions, a lack of access to resources, educational information and training leaves women leaders at a significant disadvantage when advocating for change that serves women, the family, and the community.
Connecting is the first step in EWL's engagement model. This is followed by a listen first dialog that seeks understanding of the cultural context in order build relationships for the long-term. From the relationships smart contributions are shaped TOGETHER with the local partners for sustainable impacts.
EWL's local partners in Liberia include Women of Purpose (WOP) and Women's Restoration Counseling Ministry (WRCM) local NGOs along with local trusted individuals.
For WRCM EWL provided funding and support to build and now operate Restoration Kids Christian Academy (RKCA) that provides education, nutritional support, and other services for Ebola orphaned children. 2018 saw its first graduation class (photo below) and additional classes have graduated each year since.
For Women of Purpose, EWL sponsors projects focused on vocational and micro-business training skills to empower disadvantaged and post-conflict traumatized women.
