The Women of Concern Awards Luncheon is a celebration of the accomplishments of women and girls around the world. Every year, Concern is proud to recognize the achievements of exceptional women who are using their platform to amplify the voices of mothers, women, and children throughout the world.
This year’s celebrations evoked the powerful feeling of being in control of one’s finances – from Ukraine to Kenya. This feeling is life-changing, and it’s one that Concern Worldwide’s Financial Empowerment programming prioritizes when ending extreme poverty – whatever it takes – for women and girls in our 24 countries of operations surviving on less than the international poverty line of $1.90 a day. From small-scale credit and cash transfers to investing in business development, the 2022 Women of Concern Awards Luncheon highlighted the impact of building local, community-based economic opportunities as a sustainable means for breaking the cycle of poverty.
We are glad you joined us for the Women of Concern Awards Luncheon highlighting the drive towards gender equality while paying tribute to those who embody justice, generosity and compassion in their work and daily lives.
