About the Program

Women in Factories (WIF) is an initiative of the  Walmart Foundation’s  Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) Program. WIF aims to train 60,000 women worldwide in critical life skills related to communication, hygiene, reproductive health, occupational health and safety, and gender norms. Select women will receive an additional advanced leadership training to develop work and life skills for personal and career development.
