Mission:
The Global Women’s Water Initiative was launched collaboratively and was incubated by three international organizations: A Single Drop, Crabgrass and Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA). The GWWI collaborators came together to address the lack of women’s leadership in the WASH sector, despite their central role as water stewards. Today, GWWI has evolved and grown to become it’s own operation and is currently a project of Earth Island Institute (EII). As a project of EII, GWWI benefits from the EII network which includes dozens of local and international social justice projects. Since its launch, GWWI has trained and built partnerships with women-led organizations who have different social issues they are tackling. Their organizational missions range from improving maternal health, introducing bio-intensive farming, vocational training for vulnerable women, providing housing for orphans and widows and the like. Each of these organizations have recognized that in order to reach their organizational goals, they had to provide one of the main services that their communities are crying out for: access to clean water.

Mission:

Corporations and the individuals that work for them spend millions of dollars each year funding political candidates and their committees. The Federal Election Commission (FEC) collects this data and makes it available to the public. Up until this point that data has been buried in large databases that are not very user-friendly. At Progressive Shopper, we’ve taken this data directly from the FEC and put it in context – letting you know who companies support and how that compares to their competitors.
