Right Sharing of World Resources

Right Sharing of World Resources (RSWR) builds global equity by offering educational opportunities focused on sustainable and just life choices and by partnering with womens’ groups in Guatemala, India, Kenya, and Sierra Leone to support group members’ micro-enterprises. 

Key in the administration of RSWR is the work of the country coordinators who support the women’s groups in naming and defining their own goals. RSWR partners often emphasize the goal of sharing and building a stronger community for all.

The RSWR grant program is evolving due to shifting needs in partner communities. To better respond to the changes, RSWR country coordinators will spend more time training individual groups prior to applying for funding and will provide more technical support after women have started their businesses.

RSWR’s new program in Guatemala, started in 2023, trained four groups on group dynamics and self-esteem, as well as financial concepts such as savings, interest, and loans. They will receive intensive training from COOSAJO—a credit union and RSWR’s partner in Guatemala—that will go in depth on how to run a business.
