Vital Voices

I recently came across an organization called Vital Voices.  From their website: “Our mission is to identify, invest in and bring visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities.”  They work to stop human trafficking and violence against women.  Vital Voices also advocates for women to become agents of social change.  As a result, the organization provides women with the correct business tools to help provide for their families.

The organization appears to be highly organized and multifaceted.  After looking through their website and current projects, I was thoroughly impressed.  Vital Voices depth and breadth is truly commendable.

Here’s a sample of Vital Voices Supporters:

1. Hillary Clinton

2. Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan

3. Thomas L. Friedman

4. Katie Couric

5. Christine Lagarde

6. Christiane Amanpour

7. Luis CdeBaca

8. Fatima Bhutto

9. Somaly Mam

10. Frances Townsend

11. Edna Adan Ismail

12. Meryl Streep

13. Melinda French Gates

Vital Voices is a shining example for other organizations to follow.  The empowerment of women transcends international borders, economic status and faith.  Supporting women throughout the globe helps us all.
