Empowering Women Two thirds of women in the developing world are employed in the most unstable and underpaid jobs while shouldering a majority of the responsibility as the primary caretaker, food producer and land caretaker for their families.

Embracing the World's economic development project aims to equip 100,000 unemployed and economically vulnerable women with the skills and means to help their families make ends meet. Through providing vocational education, start-up capital, marketing assistance and access to microcredit loans from participating banks, ETW is working to change the economic equation. Research has shown that empowering women with equal economic opportunity is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty throughout entire communities. To date, over 3,000 women's self-help cooperatives have already been established, each one 20 women strong.
