We teach women how to take hold of their finances and take charge of their lives. We teach girls about how to avoid the debt trap and put them on the path to independent and healthy adulthood. In short, each one of our programs is designed to empower women to take control of their futures for themselves and their families.
We were founded in 1990 by a group of extraordinary women who believed that a woman who controls her finances controls her DESTINY.
Our Mission is to help women and girls make choices toward becoming independent, productive and financially stable.
Financial education is critical to the long term success of women and girls. Women in our society face unique problems: they live longer than men, they are more likely to take career breaks, and they make less money on average over the course of their careers. There is a need for financial empowerment programs that understand the unique problems women face, now more than ever.
