Women as Accelerators

WomenAsAccelerators

At WEGG, we believe in empowering women economically, through global trade education and employment, so they can run healthier businesses and create a new future for themselves, their families and their community.  If leveraged properly, we have the ability to generate an economic surge for communities, nations, and the world.

Take this statistic, for example:

While significant strides have been made to improve the quality of life of the world’s citizens, global poverty remains at the root of many societal problems. Lifting the remaining 1.2 billion individuals out of extreme poverty will require even more innovative solutions, and, most importantly, a keen focus on a population that has too long been under tapped – women. Women hold a key to sustained and accelerated economic growth and the achievement of poverty eradication in this century.
