World Vision working to empower women across Asia

On 25 November we commemorate UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, a target of Sustainable Development Goal 5 - to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

World Vision is working in communities across Asia to empower women. We are working to build wells to reduce the time it takes to fetch water, so that mothers can spend more time with their children. We are working to provide vocational training to give women valuable skills to help support their families. We are working to educate women so that they have increased opportunities.

Meet some of these women and think about what you can do in your community to support gender equality.
