We believe that women are a powerful force for change in the world! MEDA director of women's economic opportunities Christine Faveri highlights why it's important to focus on women in development work, including stories from clients whose lives you have touched through MEDA's work around the world. Christine also reflects on MEDA's history of women's empowerment projects in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where women have made tremendous gains from increased incomes and new opportunities.
