Your support of WEA and the women we serve really does change the world!
Together, you and our global alliance are helping to heal our climate – one seed, one tree, one cookstove, one woman – at a time.
We're thrilled to tell you that the matching challenge is still on – and your gift today will have TWICE the impact!
Did you know that your gift of $20 today can provide a family of five with a clean cookstove? (With the match – that becomes TWO families!) Your gift of $150 can provide a woman with the training she needs to create a self-sustaining clean cookstove business. (With the match, that’s TWO women!)
The ripple effect from this one action can dramatically improve the health of people around the world – and of our climate.
It’s true. Globally, around 2.6 million people cook over open fires, producing 2-5% of annual greenhouse gas emissions and killing 4 million people each year from smoke-related illnesses. When thousands of households switch to a cleaner cooking source it can have a dramatic impact on our health and our climate.
Your gift today will help more women leaders around the world launch clean cookstove businesses.
You can help a woman like Binta.
Binta Yahaya lives in Lere, a rural town in Kaduna State, Nigeria. In her town, most women and girls cook over open fires, and many suffer chronic respiratory infections and other health problems from the toxic smoke.
Binta participated in our WISE Clean Energy Training and gained entrepreneurial, leadership and technical skills, as well as a grant to launch a clean cookstove enterprise. Within a week, Binta sold 70 clean cookstoves to women in her village. Within a year, she’d sold 1,000! Binta witnessed first-hand the many health benefits, and reduced medical and fuel costs for these families.
This is just one more example of how one woman has made a direct impact on our health and the climate crisis – thanks to the help she received from you – and from WEA. You can help so many more today.
Please make your gift to help more women switch to cleaner energy sources – and help change the world!
Yours for women and the climate,

PS: Remember, your gift will be MATCHED! Help TWICE the number of women to change the world. Please give today. Thank you.
