To break the vicious cycle of poverty among women and foster sustainable economic self-sufficiency by providing micro-enterprise technical training, job skills training, financial education, and counseling on one hand; on the other, it is important that we recognize that the children have needs while the adults are going through the trauma of domestic violence. As such we have added STEM/STEAM for the children, in order to free them from DV issues relating to their educational well being.
Our focus is especially on improving the lives of women who are victims of domestic violence and their children who are under-served. Moreover, we support poor women who wish to take charge of their own financial destiny by helping them to become entrepreneurs, or train them for an opportunity to advance their education, enhance their training skills and improve their quality of life at no cost. WADT assist with job and career search, offering the best-in-class education and training services.
Women Are Dreamers Too is focused on improving the lives of:
Women who are victims of domestic violence
The organization creates economic opportunities for women (especially women who are victims of domestic violence) through employment, micro-enterprise technical training utilizing the Keynesian multiplier model.
The technical educational initiative is a conservative one that demands of all women to develop as social entrepreneurs, in order to break the vicious cycle of poverty, inter-generational cycle of violence, economic dependency, and move towards sustainable self-reliance.
Conservatism here simply requires of these women to be thrifty in their economic decision-making in order to conserve for unforeseen contingencies.
It is our sincere believe that through the creation of female micro-entrepreneurs WADT will help foster sustainable economic independence among women.
