Five hundred thousand women die every year from complications in childbirth; that’s one women every minute. Girl babies are even killed in countries where males are considered more valuable. Those who survive are denied property rights and inheritance in many countries. In fact, women own less than one percent of the world’s property. They also work two-thirds of all the worlds labor hours, but earn just ten percent of the world’s wages. CLM - Chemin Lavi Meyo with our Haitian Timoun Foundation is doing something about this. Tomorrow we will be with these women in the central plateau. What can we do? protect, educate, and nurture girls and women and provide them with equal rights and opportunities - educationally, economically, and socially. No tool for development is more effective than the empowerment of women in our world. Go to www.htflive.org and start making a difference. Can’t wait to be face to face with the CLM women tomorrow.
