Today we unite as Women. Women helping Women.
I’ve learned so much in the eight years I’ve been blogging. It’s been an incredible blessing and I think it’s an amazing way that women can get together and change the world.
I’m honored to introduce you to BeadforLife, a non-profit organization who’ve been helping the poverty stricken women of Uganda, Africa for over a decade. What’s even cooler than that is they’re now ready to take those efforts to the world!
I’m touched to be one of the many female online influencers who want to reach out and help; to be part of something bigger than just one because together we can all make a difference in the lives of women living in extreme poverty around the world.
And we can lend a helping hand to Ignite 1 Million… and make a difference: Women Helping Women!
It starts with a spark
They have been working with women in Uganda who are among the poorest of the poor, helping them transform their lives and the lives of generations to come. Through the Beads to Business program, they’ve reached thousands of women, giving them the confidence and know-how to launch their own businesses. Their entrepreneurial training model works.
Other BeadforLife members never create a product for BeadforLife, but instead already own a tiny business or have a dream of one day owning a business. BeadforLife enrolls these entrepreneurs in The Street Business School, a 6-month program providing enterpreneurial training and mentoring to help them start and scale a business. This is a cost-effective and scalable way for women living in desperate poverty to get the opportunity to become successful business women.
Now we have seen that The Street Business School program works and we’re dreaming big. We’re taking this poverty eradication program to the world to ignite the lives of 1 million women! Over the next three years, we will be working with other like-minded organizations across the globe. We will scale The Street Business School model, tailoring it to new cultures and continents and building a network of trainers to help women rise out of poverty.
