The sharing of food is one of the ultimate human experiences. Imagine uniting over a meal with a group of generous women helping women, wishing to make every donated dollar count while addressing gender equity in developing countries.
Dining for Women (diningforwomen.org) is a global giving circle “dedicated to transforming lives and eradicating poverty among women and girls in the developing world.”
At its monthly potluck get-togethers, issues are discussed that impact women and girls, focusing on funded grantee programs. In the process, more than 8,000 members nationwide annually raise more than $1 million fighting for gender equity through confidential tax-deductible donations from each individual.
The local Morris County chapter meets monthly in members’ homes to be informed of the grantee recipients, U.S. based non-governmental organizations working in the poorest countries of the world. They engineer programs which directly benefit women and children, resulting in a ripple effect throughout their communities.
The group welcomes women of all national, ethnic, religious and political persuasions. For further information, contact Ellie Wasserman at email@example.com.
