The Women Of Hope Project
Having started a not-for-profit of my own has never distracted me from a lot of other great causes out there, so I am going to post from time to time about some of my favorites.
Here is one: The Women of Hope Project
WOHP is an organization by women for women to restore hope and dignity to women who have been oppressed and denied personal freedom, health, opportunity, and respect. We hope to create a sisterhood to encourage and provide resources to help these women recover from the traumatic devastation of 23 years of war.
The women of the Women of Hope Project will be the back that these women stand on to rise above the ashes.
Their vision is to provide resources to restore hope and dignity and encourage opportunities for self-sufficiency to Afghan women and their families. Our projects provide training programs and resources supporting daily food and food security needs, economic development opportunities, and vocational and business training.
They are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in need of all sorts of support from tax deductable monetary donations, to items they can use in their programs.
Betsy Beamon, the founder is an incredible woman. She and I got to know each other at the beginning of the year when our project started reaching out to hers. We have not only purchased items from them to give as gifts, we have donated toys, toiletries, shoes and clothing as well.
Please visit their site [you can click on the link at the top of this post (in orange) or the logo] to learn more about what they do, what they need, and how you can help!
