Women United for Change launches to empower women in developing nations to build businesses of their own.
A new movement led by successful female business owners, called Women United for Change, launches today, leading off with an innovative partnership with PCI (Project Concern International) to transform the lives of thousands of women in developing countries and the US border regions. The movement was born from the business owners’ desire to help women around the world experience the benefits and empowerment that comes from building a successful business.
Women United for Change found the perfect partner in PCI‘s Women Empowered (WE) initiative. Through WE, PCI is currently helping to transform the lives of over 400,000 women in 12 countries. WE provides women with skills and support to save money, start businesses that bring in much needed income for their families, and develop a voice in their community through a comprehensive social and economic empowerment platform.
“Women can be the driving force to make real and lasting change around the world. Through our Women Empowered initiative, hundreds of thousands of women are already working together to improve the lives of their families and communities,” said PCI President and CEO George Guimaraes. “We’re grateful for the support of Women United for Change as this partnership allows us to support more women in building their own businesses and creating the social capital to lead that change.”
“The women in network marketing/direct sales have a great deal of influence and a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of others,” said Sonia Stringer, one of the founders of Women United for Change. “We are women whose lives have been transformed through entrepreneurship, so it’s only fitting that we help women in need transform their lives by building businesses of their own.”
Investing in women is exactly what the Women United for Change movement is all about. The leaders, experienced networker marketing/direct sales professionals, have already secured over $100,000 for PCI’s Women Empowered initiative, even before their official launch. With over 13 million women involved in the network marketing/direct sales profession in the US (and another estimated 70 million worldwide), the movement is well positioned to grow its voice and impact in its first year and play a leadership role in empowering women around the globe.
