Sunday is Mother's Day in the United States and many other countries. It's an opportunity to recognize the contributions of mothers like Aura around the world. TechnoServe promotes economic opportunities for women in developing countries because we recognize that they are the linchpin in the effort to end global poverty. When women have the opportunity to earn income, families benefit. Learn more about our work with women in our 2012 Progress Report.
