Powerful Women International Connections is about making a positive difference in the world with humanitarian projects. 

Our members are dedicated to providing food, shelter, clean drinking water, and solutions to innequalities such as human trafficking, prison reform, and poverty... to make a world that works for everyone.    

Your contributions will have a positive impact on the lives today and generations to come... making a global change in people's lives.

Together we can do it!

Please help us bring a brighter day to the lives of others!  Contribute to the cause.

Some of our projects:

Eighty percent of the world’s population, 5.5 billion people, live on less than ten dollars a day. Businesses are scarce, poverty is the all but non-existent, medicine mostly impossible to get or costs too much, toilets and sewage facilities are in desperate need of construction, and technology is a long way off from the standards of the western world.

Seventy five percent of the world woke up today without clean water and a definite source of food to eat. Powerful Women International Connections (PWIC) team members travel to these second and third world countries and make impactful advances through the resources that are available to us here in the United States.

Part of the resources that are given come from contributions from those who care and want to make a difference. PWIC team members carry out your wishes and transfer your empathy through the contribution given.

Powerful Women International Connections (PWIC) is a non-profit organization that connects women leaders for positive change. We strengthen and expand causes, projects, and organizations to create a positive difference in societies around the world.

It's been said and many agree that the world will be saved by women, and PWIC members are doing just that.  Our members are reducing suffering from human trafficking and domestic violence.  PWIC members are also bringing clean water to where it is desperately needed, improving health and saving thousands of lives, mostly children.  

Members are providing education for women, children, and their families... and providing shelter, food, and water for the homeless.  A PWIC National Project assists prisoners to successfully prepare for life beyond walls.

This program provides basic education, vocational skills, entrepreneurial training, and a place to stay when released so the new citizen can get a fresh start and not have to resort to crime to get by...thereby greatly reducing recidivism and supporting a new life. 

The National Project, managed by chairwoman Carrie Nikitin, reconstructs the prison systems and changes the horrendous treatment of those incarcerated.

The Global Project, headed by PWIC chairwoman, CEO and President, Valeri Bocage, rebuilds schools and orphanages in Nairobi, Kenya. PWIC members are compassionate women who are professionals in business, non-profits, and government; who understand and accept that making a difference can be time consuming and financially straining...and yet, they keep pressing forward making positive change happen!

Others, who also want to make a world that works for everyone... can join in, lend their support to PWIC in many ways and receive the satisfaction of playing a part in making life more just, humane, and helping recreate a more “green” world.

Empathy and compassion do not have a price tag so all contributions are greatly appreciated. Your mark on the planet and contribution to our many causes will be celebrated for years to come.  

If you want to contribute your time or enegy to make a difference, contact us about starting a  Power Circle in your area.

Thank you for your contribution and investment into our cause. Your kindness will not be forgotten and your legacy will live on through the efforts of our organization that touches lives everywhere.

Best Regards,
Powerful Women International Connections

Attention Compassionate Authentic Leaders!

Mark your calendars for next year August 10-11, 2017 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our Global Impact Conference August 2016 was a big success!

We will come together again to share the difference we have made in society with our various humanitarian projects.

We are working to reduce recidivism, human trafficking, domestic violence, empowering developing countries, building up underprivileged communities etc. One of our projects is rebuilding a school/orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya.

Our national project is building self esteem and confidence in prisoners using their innate gifts and talents and helping them to build up their communities.

It feels good to do good for others! Join us and contribute to our gofundme site to help many others. Together we can not only change lives, we can change generations to come!
