You can change a woman's life today!

Women for Women International

I wanted to share with you an experience from my visit to Women for Women International in Rwanda last week, where I had the opportunity to meet my sister Brigitte. I call Brigitte my sister because I am sponsoring her to participate in our year-long training programme.
