About us

We fight poverty, provide education, achieve social justice, and fight for women and girls' right to education and work.


We cannot eradicate poverty or ensure a sustainable development in a nation without the participation of half of its population. Throughout history, the central role of women in society has ensured the stability, progress and long-term development of nations.

We put women and girls at the centre of what we do.
