World Faith is dedicated to supporting marginalized women in literacy, life, and livelihood skills.
Despite all the various debates about how to best lead global development, one issue is settled: there is no greater indicator of poverty in a society than the education, literacy, and empowerment of women. Whether supporting a women’s literacy program in Pakistan, or a community farm for marginalized women in Kisii, Kenya, we quickly realized that women’s empowerment is a crucial pillar of our global development work. We also recognize that it is essential to create a space for women leaders, from volunteers up throughout the organizational hierarchy. A shining example of revolutionary leadership is Lian Gogali, the founder of World Faith Indonesia, whose programs include women’s empowerment programs, a school for children called Mosintuwu, and fearless activism against those who incite violence in Poso, Indonesia. Moreover, as a quickly growing organization, we are eager to redesign our logical frameworks to better leverage our programs to deliver deeper impact in the coming year and beyond.
