About

WECO connects you to grassroots initiatives that work towards global gender equality. We are investing in women who are invested in their communities. We network with grassroots organizations and build relationships with them through volunteer projects related to women’s education and empowerment. These projects connect our partners to resources they need to have a greater impact, and create more awareness of global women’s issues. Those who are closest to the solutions are also often furthest from the resources they need to accomplish their goals, which is why we partner with people who are imbedded in their communities. We know the best method of sustainable development is through consulting the experts. We want to live in a world where women have equal opportunities to succeed. Our goal is to combat global gender inequality by creating a network of international grassroots organizations working for women’s rights in their communities. We find and vet our partner organizations and then support them in tangible ways. Through relationships with the people who understand the nuanced process of women’s empowerment in their specific communities, we help them achieve a greater impact. We support women so communities flourish Women comprise over half of the global population. When women are undereducated or marginalized, the economic potential of a society stagnates. When women are empowered with education and employment, society as a whole benefits.
