WE WORK TO ACCELERATE GENDER EQUALITY THROUGH
Whether it is innovating and delivering our own programs or supporting selected social changemakers, we get involved to disrupt the status quo and accelerate change!
We believe in a world where women and men enjoy equal rights and opportunities.
Much of our work is focused on shifting attitudes and reaching entire communities, including boys and men.
Girls can code
In Afghanistan, Girls Can Code (GCC) trains girls pursuing secondary education in English, computer literacy, and coding. It’s designed to not only develop tangible skills to improve their career prospects, but also instill confidence and belief among the students – and their families – that girls can be equally valuable and relevant in the workforce, and society as a whole.
The Womanity Award for prevention of violence against women and girls supports organisations in the Global South to work together and adapt evidence-based initiatives across their countries.
