Women's Education Initiatives

RAISED: $0.00

GOAL: $30,000.00


When given the chance, women can change the world!

Petros Network's Women Empowerment Program serves women and children trapped in poverty. We designed our program as a solution to reach the poorest poor — families living with less than $1 USD per day.  Widowed women with children are most at risk — living in extreme poverty, and left vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. A widow's child typically lives with an impoverished mindset, forced into labor, unable to go to school and left without hope and a future.

Petros Network seeks to alleviate this chronic cycle of poverty by empowering women through life skill and business education, seed grants for business development, relief/emergency support, improved health, and life without violence. We believe that through the empowerment of women and children, the entire community can be transformed. (View our approach)

We have a holistic approach to our education initiatives and focus on all aspects of a woman's life:  personal, family, community, spiritual, and her business. Women are taught basic life and business skills, grouped into teams, given initial investments, and mentored along the way. The results have been remarkable!
