Women’s Empowerment

wf kenya 2.2World 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.
