Partners

Our partners help us improve the lives of girls and women

Partnerships with energetic and diverse networks of private sector leaders, civil society organizations and philanthropic foundations are a hallmark of Womanity’s work.

Our partners help us improve the lives of girls and women by lending their expertise, promoting what we do, and by inspiring us through their creativity.

To date, Womanity has brokered partnerships at global, regional and national levels. At all these levels, our partners are leaders in their fields. They help Womanity to successfully implement and evaluate projects in Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Israel, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories and across the Middle East and North Africa. They contribute with strategic, operational and technical support, multiplying the impact of our efforts.
