How We Do It
With local leadership guiding each WEA project, we design capacity-building trainings where women access skills and tools in appropriate technology, entrepreneurship, and advocacy. They gain seed funding, mentorship, and a global alliance.
With these resources in hand, participants go on to launch their own environmental projects and teach others to do the same. Not only are lands healing but women and their families are healing too. Read about WEA’s growing impact around the world.
Find out what kind of contribution can best support WEA at year-end. Whatever you're moved to make happen for WEA: the ripple you start will become a wave. We won’t stop until the job is done, until everyone in our midst has the protection, freedom, opportunities and peace they deserve.
