Women’s Empowerment

Empowering Women: Advancing the Cause of Women Living in Extreme Conditions

Extreme Response International recognizes that women disproportionately bear the burden of poverty throughout the world. Women living in extreme situations are in desperate need of advocates who will share their stories with leaders and influencers.

Women often are the greatest influencers in struggling communities because they care for themselves, their children and other family members. To help, we want to provide nutritional guidance, skills training and micro-business support to allow the women to help their families.

This is why we’ve established the Empowerment Fund, an advocacy program to help women in need.

Extreme Response runs programs and also partners with regional groups that serve at-risk women. Women's Empowerment works with all ER programs and partners.

Awareness of the plight of women in various parts of the world is not enough. Instead, it takes action to empower women in order to help them change their situations.
