What We Do

Village Banks have been funded by WIL in developing countries all over the world, helping thousands of women become self-sustaining.

Projects created by reputable nonprofit organizations in developing countries are awarded WIL grants that support the health, education, and leadership of women & girls.

Members learn, via educational programs from expert speakers who work directly with women in developing countries to help resolve their most pressing issues.

Volunteering their expertise with locally based international organizations, WIL members support their organizational needs and participate in direct service for refugees and immigrants.

WIL sponsors unique adventures to developing countries that have or are being considered for a WIL-funded Village Bank or Empowerment Grant. Regional trips focus on U.S. historical and current women’s issues.

Get Involved

Membership is open to those who are interested in learning about, advocating for and contributing to women’s empowerment globally.

Every dollar you donate empowers women to become economically independent community leaders and contributors.
