Women's Empowerment Fund

About

Beyond the inherent value of promoting and protecting the equal rights of everyone around the world, I believe investing in women's economic and social empowerment is the best way to improve a society's overall wellbeing.

International Center For Research On Women

From ICRW: "ICRW research identifies women's contributions to their communities and the barriers – like HIV, violence, lack of education – that prevent them from being economically stable and able to fully participate in society. We provide a path that creates the conditions under which not just one woman, but millions of women can benefit. We do this by: -Designing concrete, evidence-based plans for program designers, donors and policymakers that empower women to control their lives and help shape the future of their communities -Measuring changes in the lives of women and girls – as well as men and boys – to know how best to achieve gender equality -Recommending policy priorities that give women opportunities to transform their lives"

Care

CARE is committed to providing sustainable solutions to poverty through a comprehensive approach to empowering women and girls in countries around the world. As per CARE's site: "Women and girls make up the majority of the 1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty. At CARE, we are committed to ending poverty — by attacking its root causes, not only its consequences. In practice, this means that we can’t just build a school — we must ensure girls’ rights to education. It means not only providing HIV and reproductive health information, counseling and testing, but also fighting for every individual’s right to be free from abuse or violence. CARE is committed to uncovering and transforming the political, social and economic relationships at the heart of poverty — our work to improve the health and well-being of women and girls is critical to that fight."
