Working with women-focused programs for a multilateral development bank helped Chiara understand the universal disadvantages that women face, particularly those who experienced violence, regardless of who they are or where they live in the world. Just as she learned many of the same causes were at the root of their vulnerability and isolation she realized that resources could more effectively be organized to assist them in developing solutions. She developed her own program to address this need after spending significant time with potential beneficiaries in France and working closely with existing supportive organizations in order to tailor a program that directly responded to the unmet need for this specific group. She envisioned an organization where the participants’ ability to thrive was at the heart of its community and mission.
