We did it! 2009 in review

Dear friends,

You are amazing.

Thanks to you, 2009 was a banner year for Women’s Earth Alliance. With a week left in 2009, we had raised 75% of our $100,000 match. By New Year's Eve we had raised $120,000. In just six weeks, 135 donors stepped forward to make this possible.
Here’s a fun slideshow of the year that changed everything. Below is just a glimpse...

In 2009, WEA…














… supported fifteen teams of African women to launch viable water projects in seven African nations through the Global Women's Water Initiative;



… convened international experts with leading Indian women farmers and organizations;



… coordinated pro bono services for indigenous environmental justice campaigns in North America;



… grew with more supporters, new goals, a larger budget, a new home, and an expanded online presence;



… and met and exceeded the $100,000 match by $20,000 in 6 weeks!

Thank you for being the wind at our backs. 2010 is going to rock.

With joy,

The Women's Earth Alliance Team
