Families in poverty need more than financial relief and food support. They need a new way forward. Women in particular are kept impoverished through a cycle of illiteracy and lack of job training. At DFN, our economic empowerment programs invite women to uplift their families, communities, and their own self-worth.
We believe in the power of a woman with a good idea. When she is trained in a new skill, an entire family is transformed. There is bread on the table and new shoes on growing feet. And, the risk of labor trafficking decreases exponentially every time a mom can support her family.
We believe in the skills and strengths of the marginalized and forgotten. Skills training opens the doors to a better tomorrow.
