Women’s Empowerment

Women’s empowerment in the developing world is a high-return investment. Recognizing that an academic education is of vital importance in tackling the high illiteracy rate of women, FCF supports primary and secondary education opportunities. Furthermore, with the belief that progress in developing nations is linked to women’s empowerment, FCF promotes vocational training relevant to local market opportunities, while also enhancing women’s sense of worth and dignity.
