We are fundraising to End Poverty. PERIOD!
Breanna and Brooke Bennett, the teen founders of Women in Training, Inc., or WIT, early realized that merely distributing monthly WITKITS of menstrual and hygiene supplies will not solve the underlying cause of period poverty, which is poverty. Period! In most cases, the girls, women and nonbinary youth whom WIT serves were born into poor families who have lived in poverty for generations. The young visionaries aim to end this generational poverty by inspiring girls to engage in lucrative Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) careers. Sadly, more than 80 percent of the high school young women whom WIT serves indicate that math and science are their most challenging subjects. The young women also state that they are struggling more in those key subjects during the COVID-19 pandemic. WIT is working to correct this academic deficiency in math and science and, ultimately, break the cycle of generational poverty.
