Bringing Opportunity for Fitness Certification and Employment to Marginalized Communities
The United Nations has officially designated Move to Empower as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO.) In April 2017, M2E was honored to coordinate an extraordinary two-part event at the United Nations in celebration of World Health Day, which included participation from the World Health Organization (WHO.). Since then, we have been invited repeatedly to demonstrate how fitness is powerful fitness tool, and have coordinated presentations and events for an NGO Chat Series on how Strengthening Women Builds Communities, for International Youth Conferences and for World Health Day celebrations in 2018 and 2019.
Zumba ® recognizes Toni as Humanitarian of the Year at their international convention in 2016, and pledges to sponsor Zumba ® instructors to M2E service trips. Soon, women in underserved communities will have access to fitness licensing/certificaiton that will create economic opportunities for themselves and their families.
