Women, Faith, and Development Breakthrough Summit
A Joyful Noise
For the first time, over 200 faith-based, development, and women’s rights groups came together to form a groundbreaking coalition to end poverty through the empowerment of women and girls. In a show of fervent solidarity, members of the coalition pledged $1.4 billion worth of new, concrete commitments to initiatives focused on women and girls. It was a spiritual and historic moment for all who attended. We can only imagine what the next Breakthrough Summit will bring in December 2009!
