When I go and meet with my friends in the developing world, I see they do not want charity… they want a chance. WE International is about giving them a chance to dream, to have dignity and access to the tools to succeed in providing a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

With loving respect for the dignity of the people we serve, WE International works to empower individuals and strengthen communities in developing nations worldwide. We advocate for justice and provide supportive economic and educational services to help victims of poverty and violence transform their lives. We work with governments, NGOs and private organizations to help where the need is greatest.
One of the most efficient and proven ways to fight poverty and injustice, create jobs and transform lives, is providing innovative microfinance services. WE International’s ethos is the holistic transformation of the individual.
WE International believes each individual is born with unique gifts and talents. Given this, WE International provides microfinance services, including entrepreneurial training, savings programs, and loans, which enable, empower, and transform individuals, families, and communities, helping them to break out of poverty!

Worldwide, more than a billion children are living “at risk.” They survive from moment to moment, lacking even the basic necessities of childhood development—food, shelter and safety, clothing, health care, parental support, and education. In many developing nations, more than half of the children under age 18 fit this definition.
At WE International, we believe children should be allowed to be children: to grow, to dream, to laugh, to live in safety, and to receive education.
