Women Empowering Women

MEDA and the Lancaster Chapter are launching a women’s group in May. The group, called “Women Empowering Women with MEDA,” will meet quarterly to promote the importance of women's economic empowerment as a catalyst for positive change in the world.

Women Empowering Women with MEDA will provide an opportunity for women to learn about issues facing women in developing countries, as well as MEDA's projects that empower women to rise above social and cultural barriers toward improved livelihoods. Women who are members of Women Empowering Women with MEDA will have unique and meaningful opportunities to engage with MEDA projects in various countries around the world, including Ghana, Ethiopia, Ukraine, Nicaragua, and Kenya.

We invite you to join this group! Mark your calendars for our next meetings:
Date: Tuesday, September 6 and Tuesday, December 6
Time: 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
