    Economic Empowerment

    Nightlight Ministries BangkokTo empower a woman is to empower a family. To empower a family is to empower a community. To empower a community is to empower a nation. Studies have shown that the economic empowerment of women has been proven to have a crucial impact that extends for generations. American Baptist Women’s Ministries is directly involved in the economic empowerment of women through grants to organizations and microloans to individuals, allowing women to support themselves, their families, and their communities.
