Charlize Theron is very active in charitable work. Her own charity, Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Program, is committed to reducing the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and sexual violence among African youth by supporting and collaborating with organizations that provide preventive education.

Last week, Theron promoted another charity called joinFITE on Twitter.

The joinFITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship) Lend Your Hand Campaign is a six-week rally to get people to help provide capital to women business owners in 57 countries around the world. Her tweet was her way of spotlighting this organization and the importance of empowering women entrepreneurs.

JoinFITE connects you to women entrepreneurs who need a hand up and provides women access to small loans that help them start or grow a business; bettering themselves, their families, and their communities. With a goal of helping 25,000 women in the U.S. and 56 countries around the world, joinFITE has already funded over 5,000 women in its first six months.
