What We Do

WEA equips women with the skills and tools they need to protect our earth and strengthen communities from the inside out. We work with local leaders who build up other leaders. In some of the most threatened places on earth, WEA partners are:

Saving indigenous seeds
Selling clean cookstoves
Launching sustainable farms
Providing safe water
Protecting land rights
and much more.

.

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.
