WOMEN & YOUTH
We all need a set of basic life skills to manage work, family and relationships successfully. These skills include planning, focus, self-control, awareness and flexibility. No one is born with these skills, but we can all learn them over time. And while it’s much easier to learn key life skills when you have a strong foundation early in life, it’s also never too late. The brain continues to develop during adolescence and adulthood, which means that adults can still learn and strengthen their skills.
United & Empowering Millions believes that when you empower a woman, she changes her children and, ultimately, a whole village can be transformed. That is why we will focus a majority of our resources on skill-building, educational programs that improve the lives of women and the most vulnerable young adults and children of society in Portugal and beyond.
