Gender inequality

For every dollar the average man earns, the average woman earns 54 cents, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF). In addition, socio-economic factors prevent women from accessing essential services such as healthcare and legal representation.

Businesses, governments, schools and other institutions must implement policies that remove the barriers to women accessing these services. In addition, women should be assisted in taking advantage of new opportunities.

We assist women with gaining access to higher paid and more secure employment through education and training programs. We also contribute to local public health efforts focused on issues that are of concern to local women. In some locations, we also facilitate gender norm discussions with local communities, including men and boys.

Currently, we don’t focus specifically on gendered issues affecting men or people who identify as trans, nonbinary or other genders. However, we’re always prototyping new programs.
