CATW is composed of regional networks and of affiliated individuals and groups. It serves as an umbrella that coordinates and takes direction from its regional organizations and networks in its work against sexual exploitation and in support of women’s human rights.
CATW testifies before national congresses, parliaments, law reform commissions, regional and UN committees and commissions. CATW holds Category II Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

THE UNSTOPPABLE FOUNDATION
EDUCATION CHANGES INDIVIDUALS, COMMUNITIES AND FUTURE GENERATIONS
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.

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.”
