W4E board

Dawn Sandoe

Co-Founder and Founding President

"I am committed to empowering women in breaking the cycle of poverty to experience self-governance—both for themselves and as role models."

It's often been said that water is the new oil. If that's true, then women and girls need a bigger share of the profits. That's why I'm committed to Water for Empowerment in regard to safe access, sanitation, education, jobs training, and micro-enterprises.

As a business owner and communications specialist, I can help. That's why I am choosing to support WaterAid America's micro-enterprise program for young women in north eastern Nicaragua.

CURRENT PROJECT


"The participation of women and girls is essential if we are to achieve access to water, sanitation and hygiene education in Nicaragua. What's more, when women are empowered through microfinance projects they generate household income that supports the broader needs of their families. As a result, investments in safe water and sanitation bring wider and more profound changes to the lives of women, their children and generations that follow."
- Joshua Briemberg, Director, WaterAid Nicaragua
