March 8, 2019, Funds For Learning joined the world in celebrating International Women's Day. International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance. 

Funds For Learning continues to be part of the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW)s’ PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Program. IEEW works to empower women all around the world economically, socially, and politically through its PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® Program, a business training and mentorship program for women entrepreneurs in Afghanistan and Rwanda. IEEW has been supporting women business owners around the globe since 2006, developing content and programming and mentoring opportunities targeted at helping women entrepreneurs start and scale their businesses. 

To celebrate women entrepreneurs around the world, IEEW is sponsoring a "Non-Event" to support their goal of raising $25,000 by the end of March that will go towards the education of women entrepreneurs in Afghanistan and Rwanda. IEEW’s program relies on donations to continue to create sustainable impact in these areas.

Funds For Learning has designated March 15th to be a PJ day at FFL in honor of IEEW’s efforts. Click here to learn more about IEEWs Non-Event.
