Meet dedicated individuals from women-centered non-profit organizations like ours that empower women and girls worldwide.

The Half the Sky Fair is an annual event created by a group of students and alumnae of the Colorado Women's College dedicated to the protection and advancement of women and girls. Produced entirely by volunteers, the annual Half the Sky Fair donates all net proceeds to selected local and international non-profit 501(c)3 charities that support the empowerment of girls and women through education.
