Tyra’s Extraordinary Story

The Problem

A few years ago, Tyra, a single mom of two was struggling to make ends meet after escaping an abusive relationship.


Our Solution

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:

emancipation of women

less vulnerable to sex traffickers

the empowered woman

more likely to leave a domestic violence situation and not return

ways to eliminate poverty

able to access healthcare

how to get rid of poverty

less likely to live in poverty

effects of poverty on children

able to raise stronger, healthier families

Our Partners

Special thanks to our current and past partners for believing in us and the women and girls we help.
