Our stories are more tangled, yet inspiring, than any novel or self-help book on the shelf. Our volunteers and associates are women who have seen war and violence. The women in our organization were child and arranged brides. We are proud but protective mothers. Our tears crease through wrinkled valleys of hope.
Our hope drives us to help other women; the example of a mother’s diligence against all odds, ensures our success.
Seeing women going through our program and then supporting others in need is our dream. We are a new non-profit and need a lot of help and support. With the nearly 60 families in active casework, Women of the World needs 6 staff members to keep proper ratios. An employment coordinator and volunteer coordinator are needed to improve WoW outreach in the community. Women of the World needs to make its compensation competitive to ensure it has the best people to assist it in achieving its goals. WoW has a Utah Non-Profit (UNA) membership and will use this network to train Directors and staff.
Currently Women of the World is hiring one full-time staff person and is looking for funds to staff three other positions, so stay tuned. Contact us for more information.
