What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

As the years go by, we see more and more $ spent on war. There are so many nonprofits and individuals working for peace, and no end in sight. WE are unable to print US dollars, like the treasury is able to do, but WE can create Cryptocurrency. WE believe that WE need to stop feeding the war machine, and start investing in each other via peace + social empowerment. Therefore, WE have created a WE WIN Campaign to help train and get more women, nonprofits, artists and youth learning about and using our WIN token in a way that creates a new global economy for all based in peace.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our ultimate goal is to create a global chapter organization of FOL members through which they can learn to be self-sufficient, creative and inspired by living together in the life they desire, including abundance, full-self expression, thriving mentally, in good health and well-being, eating and growing healthy foods and co-creating a new economy in their own community based upon caring, sharing and giving back via networking, education and a global outreach, event-driven P2C (Producer to Consumer) Spirituality in Business marketplace.

Our Near Term Strategies:1. Continue our Healthy Food Outreach Program which consists of: a. Collecting Donations of fresh fruits and vegetables from our donors, and distributing them to food pantries, churches and individuals. b. Continue marketing and growing the sale of our Women's Collective Products and Services that help to fund our Healthy Food Outreach Program. c. Continue to organize networking and fundraising events that promote, recruit, educate and help fund our Healthy Food Outreach Program.2. Continue to identify and gather those with talent to create their own products and services, need marketing, and whom are currently in need of funding, housing, business incubation, marketing, healthy food, and basic necessities of life.3. Continue to Establish and Market our WomenInternational.Net co-brand, update our website, online store, marketing materials, and other such business related requirements for any successful organization. Our Next Step:1. Identify funding for the things we need in order to offer Women the services that they require in shared live/work space.2. Fund a van and the operational expenses such as gas and additional business incubation requirements needed to expand our current operations.3. Create Women's Expos and other such events and conferences that educate and align Women on the benefit of supporting our WIN/WIN operations. Long-Term:1. Document and refine our WIN/WIN programs so that they can be duplicated as global Chapters.2. Create the infrastructure required to fund our global WIN/WIN operations, such as membership, food buying clubs, sales outlets for our co-branded products and services, and a global outreach and networking collective of Women Around the World that wish to support our efforts.3. Be open to the help and assistance of established programs, nonprofits, grants and funding opportunities that may present themselves in the future.

For over six years, we housed over twenty individuals and served over 500 meals a week to people in the Los Angeles area, under the auspices of the International Gaudiya Vedanta Society (IGVS). During that time, we have managed restaurants, kitchens, boutique and numerous fundraising and community events. Now we wish to apply that experience and motivation to focus on Women that have the ability to make an impact on society, but have given so much, they now need to fund their own livelihood in order to continue their contributions in their communities.

We have accomplished: - We have established a network of fresh food donors- We have established weekly pickups of fresh fruits and vegetables- Weekly and Bi-Weekly donations of fresh fruits and veggies to missions, food pantries, churches and individuals in the Southern California area- We have developed a line of food and health related products- We have identified a commercial kitchen for manufacturing our food product line- We are developing other products and sources for marketing outreach - We are building a team of Women that are interested in selling products- We have identified stores to carry our co-branded products - We are in the process of creating labeling, booth materials, events, etc. We still need to accomplish: - We are in need of a van to help us transport our fresh food. To date, we have been using a truck that was loaned to us. The gas use and unavailability of this truck is now making it necessary for us to have our own van. We do not currently have the funds to purchase such a van. - Although there are currently two of us, we do not have the ability to rent or purchase a live/work space. So we need to stay with family until we can afford to fund the lease/purchase of a viable live/work area. - Our grant efforts to date have not proven successful. So, we are now depending on "earning" the money we need for the above via the sale of our product line.
