Empowering Women

Empowering Women

“So God created humankind in God’s image, in the image of God they were created; male and female God created them.” Genesis 1:27

Special Calendar Dates

When we talk about empowered women and girls, we aren’t just talking about more income for the family, we are talking about a world where women are less likely to be abused, more likely to be educated, and more likely to have control over their reproductive choices. This enables them to not only advocate for more just policies from their governments, but also in their own families. Education and work opportunities can make a profound difference in changing the role of women in their communities.

Addressing early childhood development through nutrition, education and basic health care is the most effective strategy for improving broader social development and the well-being of women and girls in particular. Supporting women and girls is the most important factor in building healthy communities and a stable global community.

Through Global Ministries, the relief and development programs of One Great Hour of Sharing and Week of Compassion, the United Church of Christ and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) reach families around the world in need of vital food, nutrition and healthcare assistance.
