Merry Xmas and Happy New Year

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year

Women on Wings has many reasons to mark 2018 as yet another memorable and successful year. In the eleven years of its existence, the social enterprise saw the number of new jobs for women in rural India hit the quarter of a million. These jobs contribute to lifting families out of poverty in rural India. Thanks to successful partnerships with our 36 business partners, 253,200 women are more empowered because of earning an income, 760,000 children are in (a better) school and 1.26 million rural people have improved livelihoods.

Naye sal ki shubh kamnaye!
Ronald van het Hof and Shilpa Mittal Singh, managing directors at Women on Wings: “Our committed team of professionals has done us proud. Our core team and 60 volunteer experts are the ones who daily work on realizing our ambitious goal. On the brim of the New Year, we welcomed two new long-term funding partners. Thanks to them and all our existing funding partners that believe in our approach, we look at the future in confidence. On behalf of our team and board, we wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Naye sal ki shubh kamnaye! We look forward working with you in 2019.”

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
