Josie’s experience with Women for Women International

In the fall, I helped set up a fundraiser for Women for Women International, which gives women around the world in war torn countries opportunities in business, health care, and education. For the fundraiser, I helped set up, make refreshments, greet the guests, and generally host. The fundraiser for Women for Women International aimed to spread awareness regarding the organization and encouraged people to sponsor a “sister” , which is a long term beneficial relationship with a woman in need across the world. Sponsoring a sister establishes a pen pal relationship and the ability to help your sister get fully educated and fund her own business. The fundraiser was very successful-many people came, and I also got the opportunity to learn more about the specific struggles of women around the world and what I can do to help.
