GVI has implemented a range of sustainable women's empowerment initiatives around the world, depending on the needs in each individual area. We offer Women's Empowerment projects all over the globe! Have a look at our different locations:
- Laos: Volunteers get involved in education initiatives in the forms of English, computer and life skills classes. Our aim is to promote gender equality, improve equal education, increase employment opportunities and break the cycle of poverty and inequality amongst women in developing countries such as Laos. Your contribution will help uplift these women and make a viable difference in their lives!
- India: Women in India face the issue of gender inequality and young girls are often married off at a very early age, denied an education and become entirely dependent on their spouses for financial support. GVI's project aims to breach this inequality by empowering women to live more independently by educating them about health issues, career opportunities, and human rights.
- Nepal: Communities in Nepal face critical global social issues and the majority of young girls are not receiving any education. GVI supports these women to give them equal opportunities and empower them to have brighter futures. The main spheres focused on are education, career building and health workshops.
- South Africa: Young girls are expected to perform certain duties in and around their homes and there isn't a strong focus on career building. Our project is focused on teaching young girls valuable career skills, educating them about health issues and making them aware of their human rights.
