WFI Global Ambassadors' Initiative
To support our work to empower women refugees from Ukraine through our Weaving a Path to Peace through Women's Artisanship Program, JOIN HANDS NOW
WFI's Global Ambassadors' Initiative is a conglomeration of enlightened leaders dedicated to unity, collaboration and service. WFI will convene our community of ambassadors this fall to focus on the empowerment of refugees, in particular women from Ukraine and Afghanistan. We will unite our sustainable fashion programs with women artisans and designers to enable them to rebuild their lives from an economic standpoint and to protect their cultural heritage and traditions. Our goal is to make it possible for displaced families to meet their basic life needs, restore their dignity and fully contribute their talents to their new communities.
This year, WFI continues its trailblazing work with Afghan women to improve their lives and realize their dreams for a peaceful, prosperous Afghanistan. JOIN HANDS NOW
Our film and docu-series The Hour is about this time of unprecedented transformation in human consciousness that enables things to happen that have never happened before - all the result of the mind coming together with the heart and love taking its rightful place in our lives and actions.
I am so moved by the efforts of all the constituencies affiliated with WFI and the most prescient understanding that the Arts are vital means for communicating, displaying and endorsing social justice around the world.

WFI also channels the transformative power of Art, when inspired with love, to bring about human unity.
The spelling of the word "Counsel" comes from an ancient Egyptian tradition holding that whenever a leopard passes in front of a human being, that person is blessed. Leaders of the past would consult a "Counsel of Leopards" to connect with this Sacred Spirit.
Like the Leopard, members of our WFI Counsel of Leopards and Arts Counsel
provide our global communities with wisdom to pursue research-based on unity,
collaboration, and service, and uplift the world through their Art, inspired with Love.
