2014 PROJECT INSPIRE FINALIST
"The greatest struggle women face today is lack of access to education and/or employment. In most countries in the world, girl students have a higher dropout rate," says Sheena Jamora, 28, from the Philippines. "This is not the case in the Philippines, where there are more girls enrolled in school than boys. However, the gender gap rears its ugly head after graduation. Despite higher educational attainment, Filipino women have less economic participation. The lack of economic and financial power leads to decreased participation as decision-makers in the family and community. As a result, women’s voices are still not heard enough."
Sheena is a finalist in this year's Singapore Committee for UN Women and MasterCard Project Inspire. Click on the link to read about Sheena's project:

2014 PROJECT INSPIRE FINALIST
“Entrepreneurship and financial literacy are the building blocks of women’s empowerment. They allow women to gain control of their finances, make better decisions for their homes and dependents, and concentrate on other issues, rather than where their next meal is coming from,” says 29-year-old Esther Banda, from Zimbabwe. Esther has an ambitious idea; start a food-processing plant which sources produce from local female growers. Then, use proceeds from the sale of the canned produce to fund a women’s refuge and training facility.
Esther is a finalist in this year's Singapore Committee for UN Women and MasterCard's Project Inspire competition. Click on the link below to read more about Esther's project:

2014 PROJECT INSPIRE FINALIST
Mention the word “pumpkin” to many people and it conjures responses such as “Halloween”, “the colour orange”, “an affectionate nickname” and the perennial favourite, “soup”. But for Joyce Kyalema, from Uganda, this robust vegetable takes on an entirely different meaning; in just shy of three years, it has enabled the 33-year-old to help as many as 50 Ugandan women start their own businesses, using pumpkin-derived products.
Joyce is a finalist in this year's Singapore Committee for UN Women and MasterCard Project Inspire competition. Click the link below to read more about Joyce's project:
