“I am very passionate about the 10,000 Women program and I am forever grateful for the chance I got to learn and grow.”

Meet Divya, owner of Krishna Printernational, a printing business in India. Divya’s business has provided many women their first jobs in the industry and has increased its revenue by over 300% since graduating from the program.

“Every woman has the power to change the social, economic, cultural, and political scenario, if only she has faith in herself.”

To date, 10,000 Women is generating measurable results in the businesses and lives of the program’s graduates in places as diverse as Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, and Liberia. 74% of graduates have created new jobs and 83% saw an increase in revenue. Additionally, 90% of graduates are mentoring other women in their community. The program continues to build momentum, and has created a worldwide network of women, each with their own challenges, experiences, and aspirations, but alike in their determination to succeed and to make an impact far beyond themselves.
