On Thursday, March 20, 2014, Women of the World (WoW) is participating in Love Utah, Give Utah 2014, a statewide event raising funds for non-profits that make our state great!WoW has been very successful in helping refugee women reach self-sufficiency since its beginnings in 2010. Refugees flee war and genocide and are saved by communities like South Salt Lake City. There are over 40,000 refugees in Utah, with more coming everyday due to the ongoing violence in places like Syria and South Sudan.We are a Salt Lake City-based charity supporting refugee women integration through our programs that:
- Teach practical English language skills,
- Partner with local financial institutions and employers on job skills workshops andsmall-business development
- Develop human rights advocacy customized for the individuals housing, immigration, health, or legal needs.
For our refugee spokeswoman (see below), Social Pal from Burma, WoW is building on her excitement for education, helping to place her with the right post-secondary opportunities.Women of the World has earned several distinctions including: Google Grants, UWABC Grant, Guidestar Transparency in Non-Profits Award, the Utah Women’s Giving Circle, and the Refugee Services Office Grant.
