Our approach

To ensure we have the biggest impact, we look at all the angles when it comes to tackling inequality. We support a broad range of projects that help women to become independent and confident – able to stand up for their rights, and influence change.
We know that collaboration is vital in bringing about long-term change. So we work with experienced partners to support women living in some of the poorest regions of the world.
