We wish to preserve the various cultures represented in our program, while fusing them to formulate a unified and loving community. We aim to also address physical, social and emotional needs through donations and collaborations in the community. Most of all we want each woman and family to feel like they are a part of a village that they can turn to when in need.
Women’s Global Pathways work hard to help people find jobs in collaboration with local agencies for those who need to become self sufficient through employment.
