What is the Global Women’s Project?
Rooted in the Church of the Brethren, GWP seeks to educate about wealth, power and oppression, encouraging one another to live more simply, being mindful of our luxuries, and join in empowerment with women around the world, sharing resources with women’s initiatives. Read more about GWP and our founding in 1978.


Celebrate Mother’s Day by Honoring Women
Each Spring, Global Women’s Project kick’s off our annual Mother’s Day Gratitude Project – an opportunity for you to honor a woman you know and love by celebrating and supporting women around the world. Instead of buying more material gifts for your loved one, express your gratitude with a gift that keeps on giving. In return, your chosen recipient(s) will receive a lovely, hand-written card indicating that a gift has been made in her honor, with a brief description of GWP.
