Investing in Women Entrepreneurship

We invest in programs that help women living in challenging socioeconomic conditions build marketable skills, start small businesses, and secure fair wages and ethical work. When women have the power to make their own money and have control over how they use it, this not only empowers them economically, but is also one of the best ways to help reduce global poverty.

Invest in her, invest in change.

Research consistently shows that women spend up to 90% of their income earnings on things that directly benefit their children and families—prioritizing things like healthier food, safe water, school fees, and medicine. When women thrive economically, their children are empowered and protected.

Awarding Capacity Building Grants

We award capacity building grants to women-led enterprises that provide fair wages to otherwise disenfranchised groups, and whose unique business models generate both monetary profit as well as sizable social returns.

Investing in Vocational Skills Training & Income Generating Opportunities

Women entrepreneurs make significant contributions to economic growth and poverty reduction across both the developing and developed world. For this reason, we’ve made equipping women with tools and skills to become more financially independent and powerful a key focus of our work.

Leveraging handcraft to drive social change!

Our unique focus on handcraft stems from this global industry being the second largest employer of women worldwide. We’ve connected with over 15 women-led artisan groups from around the world to build stronger business models through microgrants and connect artisans to mindful consumers within the Young Living global marketplace.
