We fund work to meet urgent needs in communities, enhance women's leadership and build strong local institutions.
We strengthen the skills of individuals and organizations to mobilize in communities, influence policies and sustain movements.
We mobilize our team of advocates and lawyers to train and accompany partners in shared campaigns for policy change.
Our grassroots partners are women leaders who protect and provide for communities facing war and disaster. Together, we build skills, strengthen local organizations and advance progressive movements. And we bring women's demands to policymakers and advocate for rights, resources and results.
Young women and girls are planting the seeds for a feminist future. In our new initiative, VIVA Girls partners with and uplifts girl-led programs, cultivates adolescent girls' leadership and co-creates spaces for girls' voices in our social movements. Together, we're helping a new generation of feminist leaders thrive.
