Women’s Project


Women need our help to lift their families out of extreme poverty.

Hope Building in Lusoke Village

The women of Lusoke Village in the Chongwe District of Zambia have a vision for their families economic wellbeing. However, they face a major obstacle: extreme poverty. The Center for Global Initiatives has designed a micro-loan project to help 20 to 30 women lift their families out of extreme poverty.

The Club’s mission is to promote hope, entrepreneurism & self-sufficiency.

Women’s Economic Development Club

The Women’s Economic Development Club will comprise 20 to 30 women, ages 20 and above, who have children and the desire to start her own small business.  The Club will provide seed capital for business micro-loans, financial training, and a savings plan for school fees.

Club Meetings

In June 2017, we were excited to launch the Lusoke Club! We held an all-day meeting with the women to set up the Club, appoint its leadership team and go over the terms of the micro-loans. It was a terrific day!

In September 2017, our local volunteers held a great planning meeting with the Club’s leadership team.

The Daniel Society will conduct a Financial Literacy and an Application Workshop on October 28, 2017 to begin the process of enrolling women into the Club.
