They will invest resources in improving the land, and that will improve their family's food security and boost their income. ~Betsy Teutsch, www.WomensGlobalT...

It is also important to push for school improved sanitation facilities for school girls which help protect them from harassment. Betsy Teutsch

Maternal Deaths Worldwide have dropped by nearly 50% - we know how to do it! Jhpiego specializes in bringing low cost effective treatment to women in the developing world, and is celebrating its 40th Birthday this year. Great job, Jhpiego!

Female genital cutting causes myriad health problems: infection, hemorrhage from excessive bleeding, shock, chronic pain, recurrent urinary tract infection and painful urination, menstrual problems, and even infertility. It increases the risk of labor complications and newborn deaths. There is psychic trauma as well, and additional stigma attached to many of its side-effects. These young Maasai girls have avoided this fate by participating in an Alternative Rite of Passage.

These three young Maasai girls are participating in the first ever ARP ceremonies: Alternatives Rites of Passage. This is because their elders have decided to abandon female genital cutting, realizing that it creates many health risks for their girl offspring. Part of the 2 day ritual celebration included presented four of the traditional cutters with goats, to honor their willingness to move forward, a wise approach to cultural change. FGM is illegal, yet widely practiced.

Greenway Smart Stove, co-designed by women for women, is $22. It uses only 1/3 of the fuel of traditional stoves (which burn wood, crop residue, dung - all unprocessed, inefficient fuels) and cuts smoke by 85%. It's culture-friendly design means its use is intuitive; users don't need to learn new cooking techniques. It supports nearly 50 lbs, so is surprisingly tough for such a little gizmo. Safer, no open flames, less smoke, lowered emissions, and it pays for itself. Win.win.win.win!

Or backpack handles? It is easy to operate and has an indicator light which turns green when the water is purified. ~ $35. Last 5 years!
