What is 4 Real Women International?
4 Real Women International, Inc. (4RWI) is a 501 (c) 3 non-denominational, multilingual, multicultural, multigenerational, non-profit network run by women for women, and their families, with operations in the United States and internationally.
4RWI, Inc. develops and presents innovative and creative insight-gaining programs and activities for women, and girls, in individual or group settings. We do this through peer-counseling, mentoring, workshops, interventions, conferences, and support groups.
We aim to provide awareness, understanding and practical solutions to some of the most common and often unadressed issues faced by women around the globe today.
4RWI, Inc. believes that every woman is empowered when she understands that she deserves the freedom to rediscover herself and has the right to learn how to live her best life. The ultimate goal of 4RWI,Inc. empowerment efforts is to challenge women to take full ownership of the countless possibilities that lie within them.
We challenge women to see that they have a purpose, that they too are agents of change and that they can use their talents and skills to maximize them into possibilities. In so doing, they are able to take their rightful places in society and this world and fulfill their purpose.
