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. EWL partners with local women leaders and women-led organizations to provide funding and business support to develop sustainable local organizations.
Partnering with a local women run NGO, EWL provided funding and support for the construction of a school for Ebola orphans on Peace Island, just outside of Monrovia, capital city of Liberia in West Africa.
Completed in September 2017, this learning center will provide needed education, nutritional support, and other services for orphaned children whose parents died during the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak.
