Why does WakaWaka invest in women?
For one very important reason: We’re committed to making an investment in the future that pays dividends for generations, not to provide one-off subsidies or donations.
If you're looking to make a multi-generational impact for the world's poor, investing in women has proven to be the most effective method. Not only do women have the highest influence on the living conditions of the family due to their child-rearing role...
Women also invest 90% of their earnings in their families, compared to only 30-40% invested by men in their families.
The result is that when women earn, more funds are funneled to important family needs, such as health, education, and stablity.
Educated women armed, are the secret weapon in fighting hunger and illness, and are proven to have healthier families
Empowered women have more highly educated children
