Ringing in a new year of gender equality

From Jordan to Argentina, the leaders of our Girl Fund are working to ring in a brighter new year for women and girls through skills training, community building, and more. Take a look at what three of our members accomplished over the holiday season: 

Ιrida Women’s Center | Greece 

 Οn December 16 + 17, 2021 Irida Women’s Center hosted a Holiday Art Exhibition to celebrate the talent and skills of women living as refugees. The exhibition gave them an opportunity to share their work with their families, friends, loved ones, and the general public. Included in the event were 31 art pieces created during Irida Women’s Center’s psycho-social support sessions and arts and crafts workshops. 

As one of the first in-person events hosted since the beginning of the pandemic, this art gallery was a major milestone for both the artist and Irida Women’s Center staff.  

Women LEAD | Nepal

During fall 2021, Women LEAD virtually welcomed 20 fellows to their Young Women's Political Leadership Institute (YWPLI). This groundbreaking program gives fellows the opportunity to intern with a female leader in Nepali government. 

Sharoon, a 2020 YWPLI Fellow, shared how the experience helped her grow: 

YWPLI has been a great platform for many young women like me who want to excel in their careers in politics or social sectors. Receiving a privilege to do an internship at the Federal Parliament Secretariat, Nepal under a Member of Parliament was the biggest opportunity that anyone could ask for. I believe apart from our hard work and dedication the whole credit solely goes to the Women LEAD for making it possible.”

Reclaim Childhood | Jordan

To kick off the fall and winter soccer season, Reclaim Childhood coaches traveled to Berlin to participate in the 2021 Discover Football Festival. Over the course of three days, they had the chance to participate in workshops, training sessions, and peer exchanges with more than 100 players, coaches, and activists from around the globe. These new skills will help them provide even more support to young athletes in Jordan. 

Your generosity helps make successes like these possible. Thank you for supporting local gender equality heroes! 

Wishing you a happy New Year, 

Nic + the GlobalGiving Team
