We connect you to grassroots initiatives for women’s empowerment you can trust. We invest in women who are invested in their communities.

WE want a world where women have equal opportunities to succeed

Our work is to combat global gender inequality by creating a network of international grassroots organizations working for women’s rights in their communities.

We vet our partner organizations and then support them in tangible ways. Through relationships with the people who understand the nuanced process of women’s empowerment in their specific communities, we help them achieve a greater impact.

WE are an active force in balancing global gender inequality

We build relationships with grassroots organizations through volunteer projects related to women’s education and empowerment. These projects connect our partners to resources that will enable them to have a greater impact.

WE strengthen grassroots initiatives that empower women

Those who are closest to the solutions are also often furthest from resources they need to accomplish their goals, which is why we partner with organizations who are embedded in their communities. We know the best method of sustainable development is through consulting the experts.

WE support women so communities flourish

Women comprise over half of the global population. When women are undereducated or marginalized, the economic potential of a society stagnates. When women are empowered with education and employment, society as a whole benefits.
