Back in August Alexis Bledel and friend/Sisterhood co-star America Ferrera traveled to Honduras along with ONE as part of ONE’s Women & Girls Initiative, to see how women are working to lift their families out of extreme poverty and what role US development programs have to play.
“Women and girls are the best investment the world can make in the fight against extreme poverty because, when you invest in a girl or a woman, that investment helps not only the individual, but it benefits her family and community as well. I wish everyone could see what we saw and the difference these women are making in their communities.” – Alexis Bledel
