With your help, Vital Voices can empower more women leaders to lead change and implement programs that identify, invest in, and bring visibility to these extraordinary women to unleash their leadership potential to transform lives. Funds from this project will strengthen our global network of women in places like Kenya, India, Nicaragua and around the world working to defend human rights, strengthen economies, and advocate at the highest levels of government.
It has now become a universal truth: women are essential to progress in their communities; our world cannot move forward without their full participation. Our founders knew that in 1997, when Vital Voices was created to make space for women to be heard. Today, armed with two decades of insights and best practices, our organization is charting a new course for women's leadership. Help us empower the women we partner with - their activism, innovations and entrepreneurship.
It's simple. MORE. WOMEN. LEADERS. They come from cities and villages, from every educational, religious and socio-economic background imaginable. THEY RUN SCHOOLS. THEY RUN COMPANIES. THEY RUN COUNTRIES. They create the world they imagine and drive transformation right in their communities and around the world.
Our programs in human rights, economic empowerment and political and civic engagement have helped catalyze change, and reach influencers and connectors around the world; those whose collective opinions and awareness drive policy, funding and opportunities. Empowering women leaders to lead global change.
