Expansion of Microcredit
One of WEIF's longest-running projects has reached an important milestone: microcredit loans have now been provided to over 1000 women in Northern Pakistan. This program is empowering women and breaking the cycle of poverty through entrepreneurship.
HIV Outreach Program
WEIF has partnered with Indian NGO Somaiya Action for HIV/AIDS Support (SAHAS) to provide urgent care persons living with HIV (PLHIV) in the poorest districts of Mumbai, India. WEIF is working with local healthcare experts to create an outreach program that provides home-based counselling, nutrition, and education to PLHIV while fighting stigma and misinformation surrounding the disease.
Agricultural Development
WEIF is supporting sustainable livelihoods, food security, and gender equality in remote communities of rural India. Our successful agricultural development program in the villages of Divshi and Gadchincla has been expanded to nearby communities and the state of Bihar, India.
