Do Good Better: Top Global Women Empowerment Advocates Discuss How Your Donations are Best Put to Work

Karen Sherman and Laurie Adams with Laura Walker
Brick by Brick

Two advocates with more than 55 combined years working on women’s empowerment issues agree: in order to excel, women in developing countries must have access to education and income.

When they acquire both, women gain both voices and choices. Moreover, data and experience show that women who earn an income reinvest the majority of their earnings in the health, education, and nutrition of their families. They also bolster communities, spur growth, and help mitigate future conflicts. What role do NGOs play in the enormous task of empowerment—and how can you as a donor align yourself with organizations that make a difference for women around the world?
