The Power of One. The Power of Everyone!

"To be successful and help other women, I first had to overcome my own fears. EWI helped me to become FEARLESS." - Yasmin

Wednesday, April 9th Spring2ACTion is the day when your donation to Empowered Women International (EWI) has the mighty power to change a woman's life.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 on April 9th Spring2ACTion Day to fund 27 competitive entrepreneurship scholarships.

The scholarships will help empower women to start businesses and provide a better life for themselves, their families and their communities.

Your donation last year changed the life of Yasmin, a young refugee woman of Somali parents, who came to EWI to get help and training to launch a photography business.

Coming to EWI has changed everything for Yasmin.

Within three months in EWI's entrepreneurship program, she landed a contract for a wedding and another for a retail photography assignment.

These jobs generated $4,000 - an income ten times more than what she made previously by working two part-time jobs.

This gave Yasmin incredible confidence and courage to keep moving forward.

She now supports her sisters to go to school, and plans to raise money with her photography for other refugee women like herself.

Gifts from generous friends like you make a difference and transform lives for women like Yasmin.

Give generously to EWI on April 9th Spring2ACTion Day to empower women!

Your gift on April 9th helps ensure that EWI will have the best staff and resources to provide quality training, mentoring and support services that change lives.

Thank you for everything.

Onward and Upward!
