to equip women with entrepreneurial resources to develop sustainable businesses through the power of their own creativity.
How we do it
CWOW only goes to where we have been invited by local women. We do not give charity. We offer empowerment by seeing great dignity in the face of the poor; by recognizing great potential; by identifying leaders who will bring transformation to their communities, and by giving from the best that we have, not from what's left over. We believe in skill training and respectfully offer people to make their own decisions.
what it takes
It takes all of us! We partner with artisans who have an entrepreneurial spirit and are motivated to make a better future. Our CWOW training team goes to where the women live to offer our Unlocking Your Design business curriculum and to purchase products. Ongoing relationships are launched where all learn from each other through the inevitable challenges of growing a business by creating culturally sensitive solutions. When you make a purchase, it encourages and sustains that artisan, her family and her community.
