Mary’s Pence is a small organization with a big vision.
We want women in the Americas who live in poverty to have a say and a hand in how poverty can be alleviated and social equity achieved.
We fund women in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean.
We do this because everything we have in excess belongs to the poor. It is theirs.
