The Power of Credit

Define "credit" in dictionary terms and the first associations you see are the inner qualities of human relations. Words like Faith, Acknowledgment, Confidence and Belief. Credit conveys an attitude of Honor and Trust. Only after these initial forms of "valuing" another are established do the definitions extend to external applications related to finance, lending, etc.

Through Give Her Gredit, our mission is to amplify all aspects of this powerful principle of Valuing the Worth in One Another. By celebrating and "paying tribute" to women -- one woman, one story at a time -- we elevate global awareness as we elevate our collective esteem. For we understand that as we pause to Give Her Credit in these tangible ways, with our words, energy and deeds, we honor the honor and transform the lives of millions from the inside out.

Why Give Her Credit?

It is no secret that women and girls continue to bear an unjust burden across the world. In many countries, female children are denied basic or secondary education, then forced to marry at an alarmingly early age. Millions of women and girls are trafficked each year, and in some regions of the world, children are aborted, beaten, and abandoned solely because they are female.

In addition, women are:

* 70 percent of the poorest and most vulnerable people on earth"

* Two-thirds of the world's illiterate people

* 7 out of 10 hungry people in the world

* Owners of only one percent of the world's farmland

* Dying at a rate of 500,000 each year from preventable complications of pregnancy.

Meanwhile, women are now being recognized as the key to ending global poverty, and the issues of gender equality, women's empowerment and women entrepreneurship is receiving support and attention worldwide. Investing in women and girls, as recipients and as agents of change, has proven to be one of the most effective strategies and moral commitments of our time.

Give Her Credit  is committed to being part of this sea-change in awareness, mobilization and hope. "If every man and woman who is able would "pay tribute" to just one deserving woman in their life, and "Give Credit" to just one woman who is striving to make a difference for herself and her family, the world as we know it would be forever changed."
