Projects

Connecting funders to impactful projects that benefit women and girls across a range of social issues.

We are delighted to present this Online Project Showcase, in an effort to connect our growing community of philanthropic funders to the many wonderful organisations whose projects target women and girls and deliver greater gender equality.

This is a curated bank of projects that support women and girls across a range of social issues, locally and internationally. Whether your passion is education, the arts, safety from violence, medical research or the environment, inter alia, we can suggest a project to drive impact and advance gender equality by investing in women and girls.
