We are inspired every day by our hardworking team in Jamaica who support and provide for their families in communities that are suffering economically. It is amazing to learn about people and organizations who share in our mission to empower women in similar circumstances globally. There are so many organizations that we admire who are empowering women and making a difference in our world. Here are a few of our favorites:
