"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.

A Baby Shower? For us too?

Levi-close-upOn a sunny but crisp autumn afternoon, conversation and laughter could be heard in the hallways of First Friends Meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina where a baby shower was being held on the second floor.  Surrounded by smiles and colorful plates of sweets and finger foods, mother Emily McCollum confirmed her previous gracious announcement that this shower would also honor a favored organization of hers–ours–Right Sharing of World Resources.
