PARTNER WITH WOMEN OF VISION

Shining hope in the darkest places

We invite you to partner with Charlotte Women of Vision. A partner is a woman who:

  • will speak up for children and women who have no voice
  • will take a stand against oppression and injustice
  • will use her unique gifts and skills to lift up those who only need a hand in order to stand up on their own
  • respects all people
  • has a thankful heart
  • whose greatest desire is to honor God with her time and talents
  • Our chapter begins every fiscal year (Oct. 1) with 0 partners so we ask each partner to renew their commitment with a dues amount set annually. This year each partner contributed $50-$100 toward our meeting cost. Additionally, each partner is asked to prayerfully consider a contribution toward our projects. We have an annual fundraising goal that historically has been over $200,000 to fund the project work that is described in the project sections. We rely on our partners to help us attain that goal.

    Every Charlotte partner is required to take the Cross Cultural Study. It's a great way to meet other women in our chapter and better understand the work of World Vision. Watch our calendar for details. If you're on our mailing list, you will receive a monthly newsletter. For information regarding the next class, please click here

    WOMEN OF VISION IN ACTION

    Responding to needs in our own community

    Charlotte Women of Vision is deeply aware of the challenges children and families face right here in our own community. We are responding! Each month, September through May, we ask you to join us in hands-on service to organizations that can use our woman-power! We support Druid Hills Academy and Harvest Center so please make sure you contact us to be on our mailing list so you receive invitations to serve.

    ADVOCACY

    Be their voice, stand when they cannot.

    We are citizens of the most powerful nation in the world, with the most resources and influence to effect change in the developing world. The U.S. has a proud history of helping through our generous USAID programs. Please use your voice -- phone calls, emails, letters, visits -- to encourage your Senators and Representatives to continue the effort to lift the least of these out of deep poverty.

    Women of Vision was instrumental in the passage of the 2013 Trafficking Victims Reauthorization Act. When we work together, we convey a powerful, united message.

    Follow the issues through our chapter's montly e-update and World Vision's advocacy website

    Thank you. You make a difference!
