Practical Living Institute (PLI) launched the Women In Action (WIA) Program in 1999.  The Women in Action
    Program was initially conceived to provide financial support, training, and spiritual encouragement to small
    women-owned businesses in developing countries. In 2002, PLI expanded the program to include all women.  
    WIA’s motto is “Women Helping Women – Transforming Words into Action”.  PLI has launched WIA programs in
    South America (Bolivia and Guyana) and Africa (Sierra Leone and Senegal).

    Each WIA Project has a Project Director and team members who work to raise money and support for their WIA project.  Some
    WIA projects are developed in partnership with other organizations.
