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.

Fight period poverty and stigma in Bangladesh with education

Talking about periods is a social taboo in most parts of Bangladesh. As a result, many girls don’t understand what’s happening to their bodies when they get their first period, let alone how to manage it safely. Using unhygienic materials like rags and old bedsheets, instead of proper sanitary products, leads to frequent illness, embarrassment and skipping school.
