World population is over 7 billion people, the majority of whom are women in developing countries who live in poverty. Gender disparities in economic power-sharing, in education, and access to adequate health care – all contribute to the oppression of these women.
VGIF is meeting the seemingly insurmountable challenges of combating poverty and achieving gender equality in developing countries. Our donors are making a difference. For over 40 year, VGIF has funded more than 400 projects worldwide to help... one women's group at a time... alleviate these problems.
