Empowering Women for Positive Change

WCI works to empower women to have a seat at the table as leaders and decision - makers in their local governments and communities.

The needs and experiences of women can only be met when there are more women in leadership. Our approach is grounded in working with grassroots partners to create dynamic programs that teach young girls and women how to become involved in civic engagement, normalize women in leadership roles, and enhance their advocacy and leadership skills to increase their ability to effectively participate in conflict mitigation, economic development, political processes, and civil society.

We don’t simply want to foster change in the “now”. WCI’s approach cultivates leaders and reverence for its four pillars: entrepreneurship, public advocacy, public health, and international relief. A Training-of-Trainers (ToT) model is embraced by our team when building local ecosystems with partners that foster the empowerment of women and girls now and for generations to come.

WCI’s Four Key Pillars of Change


WCI provides women and girls with training to develop the leadership and advocacy tools that they need to thrive as business leaders in their communities. Entrepreneurship training areas include, but are not limited to, economic and digital literacy, leadership and empowerment, effective communication, and business-specific skills.

Public Advocacy

We help women find their voice and use it for change. WCI trains women and girls in the skills they need to actively participate in all areas of political processes as women in public advocacy. In addition, WCI participates in international coalitions and legislative processes to ensure we are at the forefront of any political issues in the US and abroad.

Starting with our youngest participants, WCI is committed to fostering a universal understanding so that every girl knows that her voice is important no matter her age or status and encourages them to become involved in civic engagement activities like voting, advocating for change, and volunteering in their communities.

Public Health

Addressing the individual as a whole through public health programming is critical to WCI’s holistic approach to women’s empowerment. Our public health programming trains women and girls to address the physical, mental, and emotional health of the individuals they serve and provides them tools to advocate for their own health and the health of others.

Effective communication workshops are also a critical element of WCI’s public health training to ensure women and girls are equipped with the tools they need to share critical information with their communities.

International Relief

WCI works with local partners on the ground to address the immediate needs of women and girls in times of crisis, including, but not limited to, needs associated with war and international conflict, natural and man-made disasters, and reintegration of women and girls into society following the resolution of these issues.
