WEA equips women with the skills and tools they need to protect our earth and strengthen communities from the inside out. In some of the most threatened places on earth, WEA leaders are selling clean cookstoves, launching sustainable farms, protecting land rights, and more.
With local leadership guiding each project, we design capacity-building trainings where women access skills and tools in appropriate technology, entrepreneurship, and leadership. They gain seed funding, mentorship, and a global alliance, and go on to launch their own environmental projects and teach others to do the same.
