Supporting female entrepreneurs all over the world is why Mind Her Business was created in the first place. Many of these women lack some of the basic resources that are available to those of us who live in more developed countries.
We will highlight various ways that you can help out your fellow sisters here. We know these are just scratching the surface, but you have to start somewhere, right?
You can contribute to many of these organizations in many different ways. Donating money is the most obvious, but you can also contribute your time (by volunteering), your talents (by utilizing your amazing business and personal skills), and your personal platform (be it your Facebook page, your website, your blog, your Instagram, etc) to help further their missions and spread the word.
Mercy's Light House of Hope, Kenya
"You are alone, hungry, without shelter. Kicked out of your home and school with no one to care for you, forced to do whatever it takes to survive (often sex trafficking) because there are no other options to feed yourself and your unborn baby. Prenatal care is not even a thought, you are left abandoned by your family and society.
This is what life is like for a majority of girls in Kenya when they find out they are pregnant. This leads to an extremely high numbers of abortions (including late term), babies left on the side of the road to fend for themselves in hopes that someone will find them, while others are hidden to avoid prosecution and left to die, cold and alone. "
Mercy's Light works with these women and girls to help them with pre- and post-natal care, providing them with a place to live and food to eat, and helps them with either finishing their education or helping them to acquire the skills they need in order to start a business to support their family.
*Note- This is a religious organization. While Mind Her Business does not endorse any religion or religious tradition, we do support organizations that support women (especially those that help women help themselves).
