"Empowering Women: Affecting Generations"

Right Sharing of World Resources is a Quaker micro-credit organization that supports grassroots income-generating projects in developing countries, led by women, many of whom are making less than a dollar a day.

How we work

Right Sharing of World Resources works with the assistance of field staff in Kenya, Sierra Leone and south India.


We invite groups from these areas to send proposals requesting seed money to begin a micro-enterprise program. The projects must be compatible with the three principles which guide the work of RSWR:

1.Local Self-Reliance
2. Sustainability
3. Mutual Support and Accountability amongst group’s members

In approving a proposal, RSWR enters into a covenantal agreement with members of the group.

RSWR and its supporters offer material resources, and our testimonies of peace, simplicity, equality, and integrity.

Project partners offer experience and expertise working with the poor, a vision of community, and a commitment to peace and justice.

Together, we can create the world of peace and justice that God desires.

Matching Campaign is a Success!

With anticipation, hope, and excitement, we watched as your fourth quarter contributions came in.

We took a risk.  The board agreed to match every new increase in donor contributions dollar-for-dollar, up to $34,000–and you met us there!

Thanks to your generous donations, we met and slightly exceeded our goal of $34,000 for a grand “matched” total of just over $68,000.



These donations will transform the lives of many women and communities in the years to come. Thank you so much!
