Peacemakers from the Women's March
Women’s March EMPOWER is an initiative of Women’s March Youth through a coalition with Peace First, Rise To Run, The Gathering For Justice, Rock The Vote and Teen Vogue. The goal is to provide young people with the tools needed to create high school and college chapters that guide students in making a positive impact on their community.
Through our partnership with the Women's March and the incredible nonprofits listed above, we've already started seeing projects come in that are addressing women in tech and coding and healthcare access in Liberia.
THE GREATEST WEALTH
"Health Care is a serious issue in Africa, especially Liberia. People living in the rural communities in Liberia are denied of a basic right, proper health care facilities. Children die on the way to the hospital because these hospitals are located far from the villages. People tend to seek herbal treatment due to lack of Health Facilities. The aim of this project is to provide Mobile Health services to the inhabitants of rural Bong County, Liberia."
CODING TO THE TOP
"Our organization is MESSAGE (Mathematics Engineering Science Studies Accelerate Girls' Empowerment).
"Girls and women are significantly underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professions worldwide, a divide rooted in girls’ earliest days of socialization and schooling and one that MESSAGE aims to address."
