The Thriving Women in Business Giving Circle gathers women together to support better lives for women and girls around the world. We are a giving circle — a group who joins together to support the causes of our choice. Our circle pools our funds to donate to specific causes and hosts gatherings to increase members’ awareness of the causes we support. We decide together where our funds should go.

**Due to an exciting visit from the head of one of the charities we support, we are moving our next quarterly gathering from August 19th to September 23rd.** We are so excited to be able to meet Aarti Naik in person! Aarti is the founder of Sakhi for Girls Education in Mumbai. Please see the official announcement below and plan to join us for this amazing opportunity on Sept. 23rd!
Thriving Women in Business Center, San Francisco
Our circle is dedicated to the education and economic empowerment of women and girls in the developing world. Here are the projects we are currently supporting:
The Power of Love Women Entrepreneurs Program helps African women whose families have been impacted by AIDS/HIV. They provide business training and microloans so these women can financially support their families.
The Deaf Women’s Empowerment Group sponsored by TRIFC provides deaf women in Nepal with peer relationships and an income, creating hand-stitched greeting cards and reusable sanitary protection kits.
Sakhi provides basic education for girls in the slums of Mumbai, India on a shoestring budget. Our sponsorship dollars support their literacy and leadership program Girls Book Bank: Helping Slum Girls to Read and Lead.
Girl Up Initiative Uganda provides young women and girls from the slums with opportunities to succeed and thrive as leaders in their communities through holistic education and economic empowerment.
We invite you to get involved! Use your own good fortune and the power of collective giving to do good deeds that allow more women in our world to flourish. Connect with us to join our circle or support our work.
