I know many of my readers are women, so I wanted to celebrate today by encouraging you to check out Women for Women International. This is a wonderful way to support women all over the world by sponsoring a woman in a country that is suffering from war and poverty. For $28/month you can help a survivor of war to develop a new business and help to feed her family as well as offer her emotional support to become more fully empowered.

For the past three years I have sponsored four women, two in Rwanda and two in Afghanistan. Each year they graduate from the program and I meet four new ladies. We exchange letters and photos and I am able to learn a little more about their culture. It has really been a rewarding program and I hope that some of you will join. Women are the bedrock of society, and by helping to lift the circumstances of the women, the whole world can begin to change.
