THE STORY:

Help us to bring girls voices and causes from around the world to the center of global action: NYC. 

A growing number of brave girl activists all around the world are making waves and raising awareness. Because of them, we know more about the challenges of gender inequality, and of how much we have in common, in different parts of the globe.

We want to support more girls to become global ambassadors for their causes. 

We want to offer representatives of girls' organizations from all around the world an opportunity to spend a week in NYC -- to speak their truth, to make their case, and to build everlasting connections at the UN, with funders, and with each other.

During the week the girls will spend in NYC:

  • They will have special meetings with potential powerful allies from other non-profits;
  • They will visit major foundations, as well as the UN;
  • In 2015, the Kota Project will organize an event for capacity-building, networking and fun cultural events for 100 representatives of small/mid-size, underserved women's non-profits in October 2015. The girls will be VIPs in the Kota event. 
  • And we want to make sure the participants will also have a great time -- and form a network of their own, to spread the word.

Given that our network can offer some free lodging, we estimate that a week's trip for each girl costs approximately $2500-$3000. We would like to bring in 5-6 girls at minumum. But the more we fundraise, the more powerful voices we can strengthen.

The Kota Project is an initiative of Finland Center Foundation (FCF) to establish a World Center for Women in New York City as a hub for nonprofit organizations that work towards women’s empowerment. The aim of the Kota World Center is twofold: (1) to reduce our members’ overhead spending, thus channeling more resources into their actual programs and missions; and (2) to bring like-minded organizations together, fostering a physical proximity where an ideological one already exists.
