Currently, all over the world women earn less than men and are more likely to own micro, vulnerable and informal businesses. Women are less likely to have access to assets, property and financial services. They are far more likely to shoulder the burden of unpaid work. This not only restricts economic opportunities and livelihoods for families around the world: it means half the world’s population being denied basic human rights.
We exist to help women redefine the future. Since our inception in 2008, we’ve directly supported over 160,000 women. Now, we are increasing the scale, breadth and impact of our work.
