Women of Strength Foundation™ 


 

“The Errand of Angels is given to women, and this is a gift that as sisters we claim: To do whatsoever is gentle and human, to cheer and to bless in humanity’s name."

- Emily H. Woodmansee

LDSWA™ values the connection we have with women throughout the world and are aware that there are many who suffer through no fault of their own.  We believe it is vital to give back to our sisters, no matter how little, because we know strong women build strong nations.

Our Women of Strength Foundation™ has partnered with Women for Women International.  Founded in 1993, Women for Women International helps women in war-torn regions rebuild their lives by providing financial and emotional support, job skills training, rights awareness, leadership education and access to business skills, capital and markets.

Through the program, women become confident, independent and productive as they embrace the importance of their roles in rebuilding their families, their communities and ultimately, their nations.

We will help women attain stability as survivors by advancing from being victims to becoming active citizens in their communities so they can:

•Gain or enhance skills relevant to their local economies
•Learn how to value the importance of their roles and rights in society
•Start businesses
•Send their children to school
•Register to vote

LDSWA™ is committed to giving a percentage of everything that is sold to sponsoring such women. Our ultimate goal is to be able to sponsor a woman, ‘a sister’, every day of the year.

"I wonder if you sisters fully understand the greatness of your gifts and talents and how all of you can achieve the 'highest place of honor' in the Church and in the world. One of your unique, precious, and sublime gifts is your femininity, with its natural grace, goodness, and divinity. Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos, and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love, your spirituality, delicacy, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity, and quiet strength. It is manifest differently in each girl or woman, but each of you possesses it."
