WTB has partnership and contact with several interfaith and women’s groups. We share many similar goals with them. Some are organizations for which we’ve raised money because we admire their programs and outreach.
Chadwick Residence is a local hospitality ministry for women in transition. We have gathered supplies for those who live there and have done some programs with the women who live there.
Grandmothers to Grandmothers is a Canadian organization that helps grandmothers in sub-Saharan African countries by giving food, housing grants, school fees and grief counseling for children orphaned by AIDS. We raised money for it at our 2008 International Dinner.
Relatives As Parents Program (RAPP) which gives critically-needed help to relatives caring for children outside the foster care system, also received funds through one of our dinners.
Ibtida, is a Pakistan-based educational organization through which we built a school in Pakistan in 2003.
InterFaith Works (formerly the InterReligious Council of Central New York) is an umbrella group for many of the religious organizations in the area.
The Interfaith Observer began in 2011 as an electronic journal that explores the interfaith movement.
Literacy Volunteers of Greater Syracuse , affiliated with the national group Proliteracy (also right here in Syracuse) is an organization we became involved with in our early days and some WTB members are tutors there. One of our first dinners helped raise funds in this area for LVGS’s important work.
The Matilda Joselyn Gage Foundation is a local non-profit honoring Gage, one of the unacknowledged leaders of the suffragette movement.
The North American Interfaith Network is a national group with which we network. WTB co-founder Betsy Wiggins has served on its program committee.
Spiritual and Religious Alliance for Hope (SARAH), Santa Margarita, Calif. is an organization that has similar goals to WTB.
United Religions Initiative is an international interfaith network active in 78 countries. WTB co-founder Danya Wellmon is vice-chair of URI North America.
Women for Women, our 2006 fundraising project, is an organization that helps women in war-torn areas rebuild their lives through microfinancing.
Women’s Interfaith Solutions for Dialogue and Outreach in Metro Detroit, (WISDOM), is a Detroit-based interfaith group.
YouthLead, formerly Interfaith Action’s Women’s Initiative, in Sharon, Mass., is another group with which we’ve exchanged ideas. The name stands for Youth Leaders Engaging Across Differences.
