What are the challenges facing women and girls?Despite progress in recent years, women and girls continue to suffer a disadvantage and exclusion in education systems, self-development, and job markets where women perform 70% of the world’s working hours but receive only 10% of the world’s income.
What are the solutions?
GlobalGiving believes every women and girl deserves a chance to realize her full potential. Not just because she deserves to thrive, but because when she succeeds so does her family, her friends, her community, and the world. Today, in too many moments, in too many parts of the world, there aren't opportunities for women and girls to learn, contribute, and thrive. But we have good news- our nonprofits partners are the best in the business at helping women and girls do just that- thrive.
With support from locally-driven programs, women and girls are empowered to make positive changes not just for themselves, but for their families, friends, and communities. In this way, supporting women and girls has an exponential impact for good.
