How we empower women & girls
Tyra’s Extraordinary Story
A few years ago, Tyra, a single mom of two was struggling to make ends meet after escaping an abusive relationship.
TyraRead Her Full Story
With the help of a Soroptimist Live Your Dream Award, she turned her life around, went back to school and is now helping other women live free from violence through the non-profit organization she founded.
Our focus is on education because educated women and girls are:
less vulnerable to sex traffickers
more likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return
able to access healthcare
less likely to live in poverty
able to raise stronger, healthier families
Special thanks to our current and past partners for believing in us and the women and girls we help.
