The PWIC Story

PWIC connects, collaborates and educates women humanitarian leaders to expand their projects and causes.  By providing this type of leadership training and support, our members are then able to make a larger impact in their communities.

The focus of our member projects is on helping the less fortunate, the underserved and people in marginal communities. You can help us to expand our reach by contributing to our GoFundMe campaign.

Valeri’s Story

When either a crisis happens or a change in our lives comes about, we find our deepest strengths. We find strengths we did not know we had. Many become heroes when an immediate need to take action becomes crystal clear. We all have greatness inside. Some of us find it when there is a need for a drastic change in our lives.

One of the major stumbling blocks is that many people will worry to the point of becoming depressed, but this never solves anything.  The best way to get through these types of situations is to worry less, and then do everything we can in every way we can. Then, trust that the desired outcome will work out too. The less we worry, and the more we focus on doing our part, the easier it becomes to move forward. By the time the situation plays out, we feel both surprised and relieved. The improved route is to remain open to figure out the better solution.

Laurel’s Story

One of our members rose up to leadership after a move back to California was required. For many years, she had lived in other countries. Next steps were unknown and of concern to her.

Fortunately, Laurel met with a woman who gave her an assignment, and that was to investigate a website.  The woman believed it could be of interest and a match for Laurel’s talent. The site belongs to an organization dedicated to stopping Human Trafficking. Upon in-depth research, Laurel realized that California was not passing the test for this organization. In fact, the report card displayed an “F” grade. California was failing to stop sex trafficking.

In an instant, Laurel saw her calling. She knew she could make a difference to stop the human trafficking trade. Progress is already being made in many states lifting their failing grades to acceptable and excellent.  Laurel achieved all this by tapping into her passion.


Laurel Botsford, Spokesperson to Stop Human Trafficking

Laurel Botsford is speaking and conducting workshops around the country and any place she can to educate officials, colleges, schools on the subject. She is working hard to keep our children, woman and young men safe. Laurel found her voice by finding her calling.

Our members rise to be leaders, or they join other leaders to work on a cause in which they believe.
