Why CWE?

I believe strongly in CWE’s mission to economically empower women by providing access to a full range of resources and the support structure to help launch their own businesses, giving them the best odds to succeed. Research indicates that by giving women increased voice, agency and meaningful participation in economic decision-making, the ROI to children and community is high. It is my great pleasure to do all I can to support CWE clients and stakeholders as they provide the tools to empower women to build better livelihoods for themselves, their families and their communities.
