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 provides 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.
Slated for completion in 2017-2018, this learning and feeding center will provide needed education, food support, and other needs for orphaned children whose parents died during the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak.
