Women are taking up micro-loans to found their own businesses, women are head of the family, they are mediators and provide care. Women provide future.
At the same time women in different parts of the world are facing major risks. Especially girls who grow up in extreme poverty are facing many challenges. Often these girls have to marry very young and get children, while they are still children themselves. A birth is a risk for mother and child, especially in developing countries. Because of the lack of education many women don’t see another way of sustaining themselves then by prostitution. HIV becomes an additional risk for these women.
These problems don’t stop at borders. In western countries many women are affected by female circumcision, arranged marriages and prostitution and need our help. Additional there are further infringements of women’s rights like domestic abuse and sexual assaults.
On betterplace.org you can support these women with your donation. If young girls get good medical treatment from the start, if they can go to school, get an apprenticeship and begin a job in a safe enivironment we have already made a difference.
