Work of Women (WOW!)
WOW! (Work of Women) program at World Neighbors mobilizes people in support of a better life for women throughout the world. Through education, advocacy and donations, WOW! members engage in and support efforts to end poverty, hunger and disease. WOW! was founded on the recognition that the work women do is at the very heart of our global community—women care for families, impart wisdom, teach values, provide leadership, produce most of the world’s food and work two-thirds of the world’s working hours. Yet, globally, women earn only a small fraction of the world’s income, hold title to less than a tenth of the world’s property, suffer disproportionately from violence, and are kept out of leadership and decision making. WOW! is dedicated to changing this.
