Women’s Empowerment (WE) is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating extreme poverty around the globe. This locally-founded, San Diego-based charity is committed to helping motivated women work their way out of poverty.
At the May 9 SEHWC meeting, Rhea Khulman, Women’s Empowerment International Board member, will share her experience visiting the Honduran women who have benefited from WE-funded micro loans. This mission of discovery by a group of six WE members confirms that the impact of contributions to WE is transformative in the lives of these hard-working women. During her presentation, Ms. Khulman will also describe the life-saving work being carried out in Haiti where a program to provide health services and supplies to remote rural areas is enabling 1800 poor Haitian women become self-supporting.
Through donations and the Gratitude campaign, SEHWC participates in WE’s mission to reduce poverty by providing both micro loans and social support to motivated women, thereby helping them strengthen their families and communities. SEHWC members are asked to bring their generously-filled Gratitude Banks to the May 9 meeting. All donations will go toward helping eliminate poverty among women and children, locally and across the globe.

Spring is a time of new beginnings and a great time to get involved as SEHWC makes final preparations for the Women’s Fair and begins planning the fall Hoedown and other upcoming activities. In addition, there are many pop-up opportunities for volunteering with SEHWC’s various charities. The San Elijo Women’s Club has begun featuring two members on the club’s Website each month and we would love to spotlight you!
