Womensphere’s NGO partners develop solutions to improve the health and education of impoverished kids in the developing world (ARK), create long-term solutions to poverty in post-conflict countries like Rwanda by creating markets that empower women micro-entrepreneurs (Indego Africa), fight all forms of human sex trafficking in the United States (Polaris Project), and educate and empower widows in Egypt and the Caribbean so they can build better lives for themselves and their families (Windows for Widows).
Our NGO partners also battle inter-generational cycles of poverty and gender inequity by linking tuition-free schools for girls in countries like Kenya to essential social services (Shining Hope for Communities), create educational and career opportunities for minority students in America (SEO), as well as provide a wholistic solution to sustainability and economic development issues, including scholarships for girls in the developing world (The Earth Institute), and work to improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and internally displaced women, children and youth (Women’s Refugee Commission).
Our partners design laws, policies, programs and services needed to implement global standards for achieving gender equality (UN Women), help families combat discrimination and domestic violence (Arab-American Family Support Center), lead STEM-focused acceleration programs for high achieving, low-income underrepresented high-school students of color in the United States (Level Playing Field Institute), and encourage women’s leadership through a holistic approach to wellness and personal growth (Omega Institute’s Women’s Leadership Center).
Our partners also encourage socially responsible leadership among the most promising emerging youth leaders in over 100 countries (United World Colleges/UWC), and drive innovation and mobilize resources for Philippine economic development (Philippine Development Foundation).
Join us in supporting these world-changing organizations.
They are led by extraordinary people who are changing the future by investing in women and girls, creating educational opportunities for the underprivileged in America and around the world, and building a sustainable future.
