How Your Contribution Helps
Crossroads International works in West Africa, Southern Africa and the Andean region of South America with local organizations combating extreme poverty and working tirelessly to empower women and girls.
Crossroads currently has 28 partnership projects in eight countries: Bolivia, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Swaziland, Togo and Zimbabwe.
Through our partnerships, Crossroads International supports women and young girls who have experienced violence, provides support for young girls who are at risk of abuse and HIV infection, empowers women to participate in their local government, and helps impoverished men and women in rural areas to build sustainable local businesses.
"Within families, it is the women who invest the most in basic necessities for their children. Most women don't have access to a source of revenue, but if they do... the impact on the education and health of their kids is remarkable." - Baba Sangare, project lead in Mali
