What is Global Women’s Project?


Rooted in the Church of the Brethren, GWP seeks to educate about wealth, power and oppression, encouraging one another to live more simply, being mindful of our luxuries, and join in empowerment with women around the world, sharing resources with women’s initiatives.

Celebrate Mother’s Day by Honoring Women
Global Women’s Project invites you to honor your mother and other women who have nurtured you through the Mother’s Day Gratitude Project . Instead of buying more stuff, express your gratitude as you support women’s empowerment throughout the world. Your chosen recipients receive lovely, hand-written cards indicating that gifts have been made in their honor, with a brief description of GWP.
