This year, we are proud to offer you a very special opportunity to make a powerful difference in India. The 2015 Women's Empowerment Gift will go directly to support the Mayurbhanj Socio-Economic Development Project. It will take place in one of the poorest regions of India, where women suffer from malnutrition, low literacy rates and severe discrimination. This project is specially designed to empower these women to unlock their own potential.
Your gift will provide goats, comprehensive training and other resources to allow women to grow their income, access markets and maximize the impact of your support thanks to Passing On the Gift®.
Share the spirit of generosity by empowering women in India to achieve dignity and self-reliance. That's a gift unlike any other.
Fiscal year funding needs for this project are $2.3 million. Any funds raised over this amount will go to where needed most.
