 THE CHALLENGE

Mother’s Day is celebrated in countries around the world, honoring women globally. However, in countries like Guatemala, many women face the harsh realities of poverty, violence, and discrimination. Friendship Bridge is working to counter these issues and create transformative change through its Microcredit Plus program, which combines microcredit, education, and health services to empower women to create better futures for themselves, their children, and their communities.

 

 

Most of the women Friendship Bridge works with in Guatemala are mothers, and every year on Mother’s Day Friendship Bridge gives its clients a gift in celebration of motherhood. This May, every client will receive a small gift, alongside the microcredit, education, and health services that are supporting them on their journeys to eliminate poverty for themselves and their  children. 

The solutions we're proposing

Celebrate your own mother or a woman in your life by giving a gift to Friendship Bridge in her honor.  This gift won’t collect dust on a shelf, but will empower women and their children for generations to come. Your donation will help more than 20,000 women in Guatemala celebrate Mother’s Day, and it will provide education and health services to continue empowering the women Friendship Bridge serves. 

 

Choose an e-card when you donate and send it to a woman in your life, telling her how much you appreciate her and letting her know you've made a gift to Friendship Bridge in her honor. 

THE IMPACT OF GIVING

Your gift ensures every Friendship Bridge client is empowered and able to celebrate the beauty of motherhood this Mother’s Day.

  • $30 gives a Mother’s Day gift to 25 women in Guatemala, helping them celebrate Mother’s Day.
  • $75 gives three women life changing Non-Formal Education for a year.
  • $150 gives three women a new skillset to diversify their business.
  • $500 gives five women preventive health services for a year.

If we are able to raise $20,000 in Mother's Day tributes, W4 will match this amount dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of your gift! 

WHY FUND US?

Friendship Bridge believes in a hand up, not a hand out. Your donation isn't charity, but rather supports long-term, sustainable solutions to poverty. Through its Microcredit Plus program, Friendship Bridge clients learn how to manage their businesses and invest in their families, thus securing better and healthier futures for themselves and their children. Friendship Bridge is committed to ensuring your gift has the highest possible impact to empower women. By funding us, you are part of the solution to ending poverty.
