DescriptionGlobal Goods Partners is a nonprofit organization dedicated to alleviating poverty and promoting social justice by strengthening women-led development initiatives and creating access to the US market for marginalized communities in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. GGP holds as a basic tenet that improving the financial status of women globally is an integral part of eradicating poverty and building civil society. Without the voices and efforts of women, a broadly representative society cannot be created. GGP is dedicated to a holistic approach to poverty alleviation and social justice, supporting women's cooperatives and micro enterprises as a critical means to women's empowerment. At its roots, women's empowerment is about women gaining the skills and confidence to develop themselves fully as human beings and challenging existing male-dominated power structures in order to participate fully as equals, in their families, communities and countries. When women receive the tools to learn a craft, manage their finances, or start and run a business they gain experience, confidence, practical skills, and economic independence. These skills and experiences enable women to move beyond achieving simple economic improvements to making a real positive impact on the well-being of their families and their communities.
