We empower women entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries. Our goal is to boost women’s confidence, build their capability and facilitate their access to capital, to help them establish and grow businesses. We believe – and research proves – that women who are financially independent have greater control over their own lives, are better able to invest in their families, contribute to their economies and have a stronger voice in their societies.
Our programmes offer innovative solutions to the challenges facing women entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries. They focus on building women’s confidence, capability and access to capital – the crucial ingredients for business success. Our programmes give women access to skills, technology, networks and financial services. To date, we have reached over 141,000 women across more than 105 countries through our Mobile Technology, Mentoring Women in Business and Enterprise Development programmes.
The Foundation relies on the support of individuals, private sector partners, trusts, institutions, foundations, and others who give their time, expertise and funding to ensure that we can make a difference to the lives of women in low and middle income countries. By supporting our work, you are enabling women across the world to take up their rightful places in their societies and economies.
