We offer FREE Speaker Training to qualified single moms. If this single mom, who was residing in a shelter, could learn to share her message, why not YOU?

The Women's Peace Campaign is a program of the International Empowerment Education Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Studies show that women who are empowered will empower their families and their community. "Each one, teach one" has been our technique. The programs of the Foundation reflect our motto, "Whole Person, Wholesome World" and the implementation of this technique. The Women's Peace Campaign helps women find peace within and share it with others.

 

 


Join us in empowering 100,000 women in the United States and as part of this legion of women, support women's issues internationally through education, finances and friendships.
