Each year Blossom partners with organizations that are in line with our mission and yearly focus. This years focus was economic empowerment, which is about helping make the lives of women and girls better by providing services and support that help enabled them to achieve economic success and have agency over financial decision-making. We will be collecting financial donations over the month of June (The Big Give), and then sending our collective gifts in July.

WASHINGTON WOMEN IN TRADES
Home | Washington Women in Trades (wawomenintrades.com)
This all-volunteer organization has established itself as a group of industry experts who facilitate connections between the working woman, the ‘wanting-to-be-working’ woman, prospective employers and government agencies. We have educated students about women in non-traditional trades through attendance at school career days, participation in community events and conferences. We encourage networking, establish scholarships and counsel women through difficult work issues. Through hard work and partnership, we have had much success. While we enjoy celebrating that success, we have much more to do toward helping women both attain and retain high-wage, high-skilled careers. Unfortunately, the percentage of women in the construction trades is still dismal, and the need for trained workers is becoming nearly epidemic.
Opportunity International designs, delivers, and scales innovative financial solutions that help families living in extreme poverty build sustainable livelihoods and access quality education for their children. We equip families with the tools and training they need to build their businesses, improve their harvests, provide for their families, send their children to school, and break the cycle of poverty.
