This week we highlight the six organizations selected to receive support through the 2014 Annual Selection that empower WOMEN and GIRLS. From creating income-generating opportunities for young, women entrepreneurs, to helping restore the self-esteem of women victims of domestic violence, these organizations are educating and inspiring others to create positive change for all women across Brazil.
