To Our Friends and Supporters
As we go forward, we continue to believe that a focus on poverty alleviation will be the most effective measure in empowering women, men, and children as well as generally improving the lives of disadvantaged people. We have designed an economic model that brings women into leadership roles. Our savings and credit cooperatives and community based development activities enable women to address their strategic needs, become financially secure, enter the decision-making processes of their households, and, overall, become more active in their community. Their achievements in these areas benefit the entire family. Our main strategy is to build the capacity of women’s groups, registering them as cooperatives, thus allowing them to operate as an independent institution. Our success lies in the fact that where we were once initiating development work, women’s groups are now using our methods to execute their own development activities. WACN’s cost-effective poverty reduction programs can be replicated throughout the developing world.
