Person to person, moment to moment, as we love, we change the world.

I’ve committed to giving at least 10% of my revenue to organizations that empower women and girls.
Just Like My Child is one I’m happy to endorse. They have big impact, not big overhead.
I met the founder of Just Like My Child at an event for heart-centered businesswomen. Her vision? Empower one million girls and their communities in Africa and the Middle East.
Girl Power, one of JLMC’s programs in rural Uganda, works directly with village leaders to empower vulnerable adolescent girls to stay in school, avoid early pregnancy, abuse and disease so they can live out their dreams.The girls come into Girl Power speaking in whispers, unable to make eye contact. When they leave, they have a clear gaze. They have found their own strong voice. They return to their village and say ‘no’ to abuse and early marriage.Many of these girls start micro-enterprises with their mothers and sisters. They are breaking the cycle of poverty and helping their families prosper without further aid.
