A recent survey by the Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID) found that more than 75% of women's organizations had an annual income of less than $100,000; 36% had less than $25,000. Limited access to funding and other support weakens women's organizations' ability to sustain their impact, wasting vital benefits they could offer.

Lolo’s Story

Lolo came to us eager to leave the life of prostitution. As one of our youngest sisters, she was just 17 when she first exchanged money for sex. In her three years at Embrace Dignity, Lolo has morphed into a poised young woman who is determined to finish her education, take care of her younger brother in the Eastern Cape, and not be dependent on a man in any way.
