Why “Here and Now”?

Hic et nunc  is a Latin phrase of current use that literally means “here and now”.  The expression “Here and Now” as part of our organization’s name indicates the urgent, immediate attention with which we seek to respond to the needs of women in vulnerable communities through social projects for sustainable food production, preventative health care, and education for a brighter future.

In the Latin language, hic et nunc is often used by those who hurry, but also by those who give urgent orders to be obeyed immediately. Thus, our name, Women Here and Now, moves us the realm of general theories and abstract approaches into the real world of practical, concrete applications.

Women, here and now!
Here and now more education!
Here and now, more health!
Here and now, more empowerment!
