Welcome

Women of Vision is pleased to present a week of activities prior to International Women's Day, March 8, 2013. We start our week with "I Was Worth 50 Sheep."

Learn more about our other opportunities this week at www.womenofvision.org.

There’s something in every woman that objects to injustice. But when she sees it happening to the most vulnerable, there’s an innate quality in her that rises against it even more fervently.

World Vision’s Women of Vision is a movement of women intolerant of injustice. With a heart to see justice restored to the afflicted and oppressed, we’re committed to defending and equipping those who are unable to defend themselves. Despite extensive world reaction, injustice continues to exist. So while the world waits, we won’t.

Women of Vision is a volunteer ministry of World Vision, mobilizing and uniting women called to invest their time, intellect, compassion, creativity, and finances so impoverished women and children might find hope and experience a tangible expression of God's love.
