Empowering women & girls Fund
Despite monumental leaps in gender equality in the past two decades, women and girls are still disproportionately affected by extreme poverty, while still battling institutionalized and societal sexism, violence, and sexual abuse. When you donate to effective women’s charities, you’re making the world a safer, healthier, and fairer place. Here is a hand-picked list of highly-rated[1] organizations working in women's health, education, and development. These organizations have grassroots ties and support various causes to empower women and girls in the community. This is by no measure a complete list of all the organizations working for causes affecting women, but merely a starting point, and can you find more resources here[2], [3], [4] and [5]. Let's fight for what's fair, no matter where women are. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [1] CharityNavigator ratings: all except kiva are rated 4 stars on charity navigator, while kiva is at 3 stars: Asha for Education: https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=7630 CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education): https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=11479 Kiva: https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=12978 Fistula Foundation: https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=8855 [2] https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=content.view&cpid=2133#group-195 [3] https://www.thebalancesmb.com/saving-the-world-with-charities-for-women-and-girls-4158742 [4] https://www.thelifeyoucansave.org/causes-to-support/women-charities/ [5] https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/534393/organizations-helping-women-around-world
