In my opinion, the single most significant thing that can be done to cure extreme poverty is this: protect, educate, and nurture girls and women and provide them with equal rights and opportunities—educationally, economically, and socially.

Strong Women, Strong World confronts injustice and tackles broken systems to equip girls and women to rewrite their stories, becoming powerful change agents that transform their families and communities.
The movement is a response to the needs of women and girls living in poverty in developing countries. We’re focused on sustainable, community-driven, long-term solutions. We are:
- A Catalyst to provide a voice and resources for women and girls who would otherwise pass their struggles on to their children.
- A Connection for women and men worldwide who recognize that women’s empowerment and gender equity is the key to lasting social change and want to use their personal resources and networks to support this change.
- A Community committed to mobilizing others to come together to empower women and girls to live life in all it’s fullness, reaching their God given potential.
