We are committed to pursuing equity for all women through our focus on economic empowerment and leadership for women and girls. As the only organization in our region solely focused on creating social change for women and girls, we know it is vital to address the root causes of systemic gender inequities. We also know that investments in women promote economic development, education, and health, not only for the women themselves, but also for their families and the communities around them. Our data-driven and human-centered approach to grantmaking ensures that we invest in sustainable solutions designed by and for the communities they serve.
