CLinked is a global women's organization that educates and empowers women to become leaders in their local communities. Vulnerable women learn how to give voice to their stories, build peer to peer relationships and take actionable steps to finding solutions to challenging social issues.
CLinked believes that those closest to the problem are closest to finding a solution to the problem. Ongoing leadership training and education of women in their communities creates a sustainable snowflake effect.
CLinked has worked with 1,765 high risk women, men and children
and educated 270 trainers in United States, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Myanmar.
In partnership with Jesuits Refugee Service, CLinked trained 16 leaders in the Northern Myanmar state of Kachin, which is in the midst of ongoing civil conflict.
The leaders taught the teachers, villagers, catechists and children in the refugee camps and the orphanage about human trafficking awareness and safety. The video shows 7th grader demonstrating what they learned through roll-playing.
CLInked's Singapore Campaign with Daughters of Tomorrow was officially launched in January 2018!
In 2017 CLinked began training Daughters of Tomorrow leadership team to help local women address the critical need for safe and reliable childcare.
The 2018 campaign will build a network of women in need of child care working together with women committed to child minding children in their community.
Education is at the core of CLinked's mission. CLinked's team has conducted workshops, campaigns, life skill training and radio programing with dozens of non profits in 7 countries.
