Giving Back

We care, and give back. We believe Giving and contributing is core to true success and is our way of expressing gratitude to the people, businesses and organizations we are privileged to serve. At Women on the Leading Edge, inc., we care about making a difference, leaving a legacy and making the world a better place, through giving back.

 

A portion of all proceeds go to charity in the hope that our contribution will ease the way and raise the quality of life for all the world’s inhabitants. We especially support organizations who’s mission, fundraising and efforts to create change are devoted to empowering women world wide to lead better lives, with greater resources, enabling them to become self sufficient and engaged in meaningful and purposeful livelihoods.

JUST LIKE MY CHILD FOUNDATION

http://www.justlikemychild.com

Changing the world through educating and empowering women. Unleashing the true potential of women and girls. Strengthening and empowering women to fight against violence, reclaim themselves and reach their economic potential. The true potential of women and girls can be unleashed.”

“The statistics are devastating, yet we are learning that investing in a girl can reap the most staggering rewards – rewards that have the power to change the world. Women’s and girls’ empowerment has been proven to raise economic productivity and reduce infant mortality. It contributes to improved health and nutrition, and increases the chances of education for the next generation.

We passionately believe in protecting the rights of children. That’s why Just Like My Child Foundation is investing in one of the most effective ways to create a shift at the grassroots level – life skills and mentoring training for thousands of girls who are now bold enough to look you in the eye, strong enough to state their rights and free enough to rise to their full potential as they lead their country forward. “

The Unstoppable Foundation  believes  that individuals who live in poverty want the same things for themselves that we do— a means to earn enough money to be able to take care of the needs of themselves and their families and an opportunity to thrive and become self-sufficient. When they are given the right tools, they are very driven and capable of improving heir own lives. The Unstoppable Foundation provides these tools through education. And it is education that creates a ripple effect for the family, community and for generations to come. It’s not charity but community empowerment in the truest sense of the word.

We at Women on the Leading Edge know how absolutely essential –education is and that knowledge is power.

 

Individuals who live in poverty want the same things for themselves that we do— a means to earn enough money to be able to take care of the needs of themselves and their families and an opportunity to thrive and

become self-sufficient. When they are given the right tools, they are very driven and capable of improving

their own lives. The Unstoppable Foundation provides these tools through education. And it is education that creates a ripple effect for the family, community and for generations to come.

We’re all familiar with the idea of adopting a child. This is the same concept on a broader scale.

We work in partnership with the communities so that in five years they can take over the ownership

of the project. It’s not charity but community empowerment in the truest sense of the word.

“Research proves that we have more than enough resources RIGHT NOW to eliminate extreme poverty by providing universal primary education to every child on the planet. All we need is the collective will to do it.”
