Global Ministries Projects that Empower Women

Empowering women and girls is more than securing a better income for families. It’s creating a world where women are less likely to be abused, more likely to be educated, and more likely to have control over their health and reproductive choices. Empowering women enables them not only to 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 families, communities, and nations. Supporting women and girls is the most important factor in building healthy communities and a stable global community.

Global Ministries works with partners who empower women and girls in communities, churches, and countries around the world. Gifts for this theme support programs such as education for women and girls, young adult advocacy programs, and income-generating projects.

We invite you to join us in supporting these ministries either by making a general gift for Women's empowerment or to one of the ministries below that make a very real difference in the lives of those they serve.
