Give a Gift of Women's Empowerment

November 12, 2017

Did you know that all proceeds from purchases at The Good Buy fund UUSC's human rights programs around the world? UUSC works tirelessly to preserve the rights of women and children who are most vulnerable to human rights abuses. Here are just a few of the recent impacts we've accomplished with your help:

  • The Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services’ (RAICES) Family Advocate Program has been able to provide long-distance support and orientation to over a thousand women and children seeking asylum in the U.S. These women and their children face many significant barriers to a successful asylum claim as well as challenges related to integration into the community and access to legal counsel. RAICES’ assistance is often the difference between an asylum-seeking woman moving forward with her claim or giving up and returning to a dangerous environment.
  • The Tanzania Gender Networking Program (TGNP) launched a “Take the Buckets off Women’s Heads” campaign to ensure that accessible water sources were within 400 meters of all buildings. This campaign led to the Dar es Salaam water utility installing four new water points, all of which are maintained by women.
  • As a result of advocacy led by PROCESS Foundation in the Philippines, a provincial ordinance was passed to enhance and expand the government’s Violence Against Women (VAW) response program. PROCESS then led trainings of those government employees involved in the VAW program on the laws and government obligations applicable to the protection of women.
