St. Louis - Tuesday 17 October 2017 - Women Empowering Women Luncheon

We are launching a women's group on October17, "Women Empowering Women" to commemorate the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Two guest speakers will address poverty in our community and globally, specifically in Bangladesh.

It will be an educational event as we hope to create some passion around poverty eradication among the attendees – both for those living in poverty locally and those around the world. We will show a video recently taken of extremely poor families in Bangladesh who we are serving and who need to be served and have a speaker talk about recent poverty statistics in St. Louis, Missouri where our office is located.

Partners in Sustainable Development International (PSDI) is a nonprofit that promotes and supports the eradication of poverty in rural areas of Bangladesh using a holistic model that involves families in their uplift.
