For millions of women in the world struggling to overcome poverty, survival is the day’s only reward.
Women like us have the power to make a difference.

Women who—like us—are striving to build a safer, more secure, and healthier future for themselves and their families. So, let’s celebrate our sisters around the world whose grit, ingenuity and dignity are an inspiration and a force for change.
It doesn’t take money, just a mouse click. Visit www.onesharedworld.org to learn more about how we can help tackle global poverty. And, invite your colleagues and friends, too. Because in this world we all share, hope is our common language.
