Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke has launched Women’s WorldWide Web or W4, a crowdfunding site to help women around the world do more sustainably. Lindsey explains, “W4 is a social-enterprise, crowdfunding platform dedicated to promoting girls’ and women’s empowerment around the world — in developing and developed countries.” “We foster women’s social entrepreneurship as a powerful force for good—morally, socially financially, and for the sake of the environment,” she adds. Lindsey sees hope and opportunity in the developing world. “Across the world, we’re seeing women social entrepreneurs driving change, improving lives, and even saving lives. These women are transforming communities and societies. They’re innovative, creative, and exceptionally resourceful, launching and scaling-up social businesses, often with stunningly limited resources.” “Everywhere you look, women social entrepreneurs are accomplishing groundbreaking projects. There’s a particularly impressive wave of innovative women social entrepreneurs improving and saving lives in Africa,” she concludes.
