She Fights Poverty

International Women’s Day

In honor of International Women's Day, we are celebrating women who are working to create economic prosperity for both women and men through our #SheFightsPoverty campaign.

Women in poverty are disproportionately affected by violence and discrimination. And when we invest in economic opportunities for a woman, she prospers – and not just in terms of immediate income, but for sustainable prosperity for herself, her family, and her community.

A Message From One of Our Generous Donors

This year, a very special group of dedicated women, including Diana Wege, committed to matching dollar-for-dollar every donation we raise during the #SheFightsPoverty campaign, up to $8,879.

Diana Wege, TechnoServe Donor"I give to Technoserve for all of their incredible work helping people enrich their own lives, but also in honor of former board member, Father Theodore Hesburgh. He was a great friend to my father, Peter M. Wege. In 1992, we all spent a wonderful week in Costa Rica where he gave the keynote address at my father’s conference entitled “God, Money and the Rainforest”."
