Women and children are more vulnerable populations by nature, still suffering abuses and lack of human rights in too many parts of the developing world. It is also well accepted that women are the most effective channel of philanthropic programs fostering economic development and access to education in these regions. This focus area takes particular importance in Africa, a natural place for Tsadik to manifest its mission of reaching out to the poorest and most disadvantaged populations.
