Women Together Scholarship Project
We Were Made For More
The reality in our world is… that barriers have been built to suppress and greatly limit women from developing their potential and fulfilling their dreams. Many have succumbed to their plight, while many others fight back. Women know there is more.
The Women Together Scholarship, comes alongside and equips women to step into their calling.
