"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

Samson, with Marian Baker from New Hampshire (New England Yearly Meeting), an old 'African' friend. Marian spent years living and working in East Africa.  Note the 'Quaker bonnet' that Marian made.
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.

Ebola Virus & RSWR

As you know, Right Sharing of World Resources has several projects in Sierra Leone, where the Ebola virus is spreading at an alarming rate.

Unfortunately, we have a number of projects in especially vulnerable areas.

We are told that simply accessing chlorine and soap buckets in this impoverished country is critical in containing the disease.  We are hoping to provide these essentials in the areas our staff associates are still able to visit.

Therefore, if you would like to send a donation to the RSWR office, designated for “Ebola Prevention” (the purchase of soap/chlorine and buckets) please do so by August 21 and we will wire the funds on August 23.
