Race to Stop the Silence! As one who has journeyed from surviving to thriving, Founder Paula Constantino encouraged others to forgive themselves first, to let go and then to forgive others when spoke at their fund-raising event in Washington, DC.

Paula also stressed that when abuse occurs the victim all too often keeps silent – everyone of us needs to keep our antennae tuned in to the possibility of abuse and to approach the suspected victim to offer an ear and support.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s like the adage that when you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day,
but when you teach a woman to fish you feed her and her family for a lifetime.

~~ Note from our founder   ~~

Understanding Women Changing the World...


      A new paradigm is emerging in the world, embracing the evolution of the heart and spirit, creating the ability to change the world from the roots up... especially with global emergence of the "feminine principle."


      In 2004, Prof. Muhammad Yunus with the Grameen Bank received the Nobel Peace Prize for paving the way to underwrite women’s ability to improve their and, therefore, their family’s lives by providing micro loans. 


     Celebrated author and board member, Bill Lamond, introduced his groundbreaking work on “The Feminine Principle” in 2006. In his book entitled, Born to Lead, he posits that “…it is up to the 3.2 billion women on the planet to save it.” Lamond’s treatise supports Prof. Yunus’ findings that when a woman is empowered, her family benefits. When her family benefits, her community benefits, and the cyclical movement enters an upward trajectory. 


     We now know how to position women globally to make a positive impact on the world for generations to come.


By building an information highway with 21st century technology - audio information modules - we can

              • Inspire women by banishing the poverty mentality and building self worth
              • Enlighten by showing them how technology levels the playing field creating more equality for women -
              • Empower women worldwide by teaching them practical, useful life and business skills


Using virtual information that is easy to access, easy to use and easy to pass on to others.

Note: We are currently working with PeaceXPeace and The Leading Women of Africa.  Learn more here -- Preview the Pilot WRAP Here

     With your help NOW – we can enable women to think abundantly, improve their quality of life and position women worldwide to co-exist peacefully – leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come.

     Everyone can achieve more through Synergy – by the exchanging ideas, working together and combining resources for the success of all.

With synergy, the result is far greater than the sum of its parts. You can be part of this synergy!

Invest in the future Now Live  - Be a Charter Visionary

Donations are tax deductible as a 501(c)(3) public charity.

Our underlying concept is that by nature, women freely share what they know with others.

     As Lamond suggests, when women benefit with practical, useful information, their family and community benefit as they share it, passing on that information to their family, friends and others. This sharing inspires, enhances and enriches all the lives they touch.

Our mission is to provide easily accessible, practical, lifetime skills to women worldwide.

     As this information helps these women to enrich their lives and those around them, these women will share what they have learned with their family and community. 

Knowledge, confidence and wisdom then spread outward like ripples on a pond....

Thus, the world begins to change from the grass roots up.
