Strategic Funding Partnerships

Purpose-designed collaborations that advance women's entrepreneurship.

The Cherie Blair Foundation for Women works with companies, governments, institutions, trusts, charitable foundations and international development agencies to deliver our women-centred programmes and catalyse women’s economic justice worldwide.

We have a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by women entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries. Since 2008 we have worked with partners to develop and deliver innovative and tailored programmes that support women to build the knowledge, skills, confidence and networks they need to start, sustain and grow successful businesses.

This enables women to reclaim their rights, become better off, more secure and independent, support their families, boost their communities, and contribute to economic growth and global sustainable development.

Our offer

Partnerships are crucial to the success of our gold-accredited Mentoring Women in Business programme, our award-winning HerVenture business skills app and our intensive Road to Growth, Road to Finance and Road to Leadership training programmes.

We look for innovative, mutually beneficial partnerships to advance development progress. The WEAVE activity exemplifies this. The effective partnership structure enabled WEAVE to be contextualized, scalable, sustainable, and truly impactful.
