GUEST,livelylass BS: Giving to Charity...Where? (32) RE: BS: Giving to Charity...Where? 22 Jul 11


"I am specifically thinking of places that address hunger and poverty in children and women."

The key to addressing all kinds of issues for children, is to empower women: offer a woman education and skills training and you educate her whole family, offer a woman a way of making money and keeping hold of it, and you feed and clothe her whole family.
I'd do some research into charities which support women's co-operatives in poverty stricken areas.

An example of West African Women's Cooperatives and the kinds of simple things they need in order to keep helping themselves is described here:
