This fund is for donors who seek to address the disproportionate burden on women and girls among people living in extreme poverty. Supporting effective charities like those listed below mean women have broader access to prenatal care, family planning resources, and opportunities for economic empowerment. In turn, supporting women and girls enhances the well-being of the entire community.
Despite significant gains in gender equality in the past two decades, women and girls are still disproportionately affected by extreme poverty. When you donate to effective women’s charities, you’re making the world a safer, healthier, and fairer place.
There are currently 5 charities contained within the Help Women and Girls Cause Fund: Development Media International, Educate Girls, Fistula Foundation, Population Services International and Village Enterprise.
The research team at The Life You Can Save undertakes annual due diligence on each, and verifies the impact each charity is having.
The Life You Can Save's "Impact Calculator" calculates the impact that donations can have, and metrics plus data are kept up-to-date each year so that donors can be confident of how their gift helps women and girls living in poverty.
We make “smart giving simple” by curating a group of nonprofits that save or improve the most lives per dollar. We aim to create a world where everyone has an opportunity to build a better life and where there’s no suffering or death due to extreme poverty.
