Recognizing women and girls as critical partners in development, World Vision and its U.S. based mobilization effort, Women of Vision, work to equip, protect, and advocate for women in nearly 100 countries. Programs help women access health care, recover or protect themselves from exploitation, become educated and literate, access microloans and economic opportunities, and gain influence in their community to promote positive change. Cynthia is passionate to change the global story for women and girls, believing that collectively investing in women and girls is significant to the alleviation of poverty, and key to peace building and sustainable social change.
