Gender matters in philanthropy. Philanthropy for girls’ and women’s causes encompasses multiple funding interests globally.These include health, human rights, safety, social and economic equality, representation in the arts, and even infrastructure issues related to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
Women’s and girl’s issues are receiving attention from an increasing number of funders with a diverse range of interests. Many have modest resources and offer grants in the ballpark of four figures—although some offer grants that run far higher.
Advancing Girls’ Education in Africa (Age Africa) (Malawi) provides life-changing opportunities to young women in Malawi through targeted initiatives in education, mentoring, and leadership development.
