Central Islip, NY From shelters to startups, each month Tease Tea selects an organization committed to the empowerment of women to support and highlight.
Mission: Women for Women International helps women in countries affected by war and conflict as they are the most marginalized. They are supported to earn and save money, improve overall well-being and influence decisions in their home and community with the resources they are provided. The result is women using the skills they've learned to create sustainable change for not only herself, but her family and the community at large.
Women for Women International begun in 1993 and since then has helped more then 478,000 marginalized women in countries that are affected by conflict and war. Women are taught skills and given tools to create change from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency in 8 countries across the world.
We bring women together in a safe space to learn life, business, and vocational skills. Once enrolled, each receives a monthly stipend – a vital support that enables her to participate. Women increase their ability to earn an income with new skills that are in-demand. They learn about their legal rights, and they become knowledgeable about health and nutrition. The result: stronger women, stronger families, and stronger communities. This ripple effect is profound.
Tease is proud to support Women for Women and highlight them as our September Chari'tea organization. To find out more information or to contribute to Women for Women International, click HERE.
