Women's Empowerment

Women's Empowerment



Lasting transformation happens when women are supported, connected and empowered. This gift impacts individual women, their families and communities through Self-Help Groups, training and income-generation activities.

How your gift helps

For decades, many of Tearfund’s Christian partners have seen significant change in families and communities through women’s Self-Help Groups (SHGs), which empower women through social support, income-generation activities, training and education.

Through connection in their SHG, supported by Tearfund’s partner EFICOR, these women are taking a stand for a more sustainable future. They share their learning with other community members and government representatives, and have created a network of accountability to ensure that unsustainable practices like deforestation are kept in check. Together, they are overcoming injustices and shaping more hopeful futures for their families and community!
