For millions of women and girls in India, poverty takes its toll. Sickness can quickly become part of everyday life with limited access to basic healthcare.

But you can help change this.

Approximately 70% of common illnesses are preventable through health education. It starts with empowering one woman for only $500. That’s all it takes to train a community health leader.

In Australia, it’s easy to take good health and hygiene for granted. But in India, many girls do not attend school during their period. Health education and access to sanitary products are simple solutions – one that health leaders can provide.

They also advise communities about other life-changing behaviours: giving birth in hospitals, breastfeeding, vaccinations, rehydration salts, mosquito nets as well as access to microloans for building toilets and accessing clean water supplies.

And it’s not just the community that benefits. The health leader herself is changed.

“Before I was seen as nothing… I wasn't spoken to or recognised as worthwhile. Now I understand, as I have met other business women and (I’m) respected by all, as I educate my community about health and contribute financially to my family." - Ananya

There are two simple ways you can help:

  • Empower one woman as a health leader for $500
  • Lend your voice to other women like her and ask your friends to give too! Download the toolkit below for tips on organising your fundraiser.

  • Here's what your support for Women4Women will achieve:

  • A woman is empowered with training and mentorship
  • She educates 200 other mothers and their families
  • Local families are healthier, safer and smarter
  • She is a leader with a voice empowered to build equality and enable even more women
  • She continues to grow her income and make a difference.

  • Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.

    As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
