Empowering Stories for Women’s Day Weekend

Welcome to the weekend of International Women’s Day.  AID salutes the women who pave the way for empowerment, especially in rural and marginalized communities.  Removing barriers women face in accessing healthcare, employment, land, government services and public spaces as well as education for girls and critical gender curriculum for all students are just some of the ways AID partner organizations work towards a more equitable society for all.

We hope that you will continue to support our programs and also join our series of conversations with AID partners as we listen to girls and women share their own personal stories of how and what they have overcome, and the path they see for more women to forge ahead.
