I admire Global Fund both for its mission and its execution. The channeling of money to organizations working to solve women's (and thereby families' issues) is an efficient, ingenious and moral way to help women country by country with their most pressing needs, from personal safety and health, to economic empowerment, to political participation. Global Fund is the organization that does this in a big way, with compassion and intelligent evaluations of need. And it tells the stories so people everywhere can connect to the courage and determination of those who are trying to change their lives and communities for the better. Kudos to all those within Global Fund who make it possible for us to contribute to them. Kudos to those who use those funds to make a difference.

The organization I write about is the Alif Laila Book Bus Society in Lahore, Pakistan. The Global Fund for Women has supported our work and believed in our cause of innovative education for young girls for close to two decades. We have found this support holding us up at crucial financial times repeatedly! A truly empathic organization!

I was inspired to first donate to the Global Fund for Women over 25 years ago. It has grown with grace and integrity, reaching out to women everywhere, offering support through grants and leading by example. The work they do throughout the world is vital to our future. I trust the Global Fund to wisely use my donation to improve women's lives, so they may nurture themselves, their children and the planet.

I have contributed to the Global Fund since 1986, when I first heard one of the Founders speak at the HP Technical Women's Conference. I was so inspired by her compelling presentation. The realization that I was/am one of a very small number of educated, privileged technical women, (then sitting in the air-conditioned comfort of a convention center in the San Francisco Bay area), while so many millions of women around the world have so little and struggle every day has never left me. The Global Fund has been hard at work during these last 25 years. Their relationships and communication with their donors and recipients is thoughtful, thorough, respectful and positive. The Global Fund changes lives and gets results. Women and children are better for it.

The Great!

I hope the Global Fund is seeking alliances and partnerships with other giving non-profits in leveraging their resources to help even more women.

It is one of the most supportive organizations to the women's movement I have ever known. GFW has amazing sisterhood approach to the women and women's organizations around the world and their input to positive changes of women is great. I have known this organization for 10 years and admire their work, energy and enthusiasm. I am very happy and proud to be a member of big GFW family.

Nuestra organizacion Envejecer en Armonia, Inc. recibio donativos de Global Fund for Women que nos permitieron comenzar hace dos anos el trabajo de violencia domestica y agresion sexual en mujeres de edad avanzada, siendo en Puerto Rico la unica organizacion que trabaja con el tema. Estamos muy agradecidas por el apoyo y la solidaridad con que siempre han apoyado nuestros proyectos de mujeres en el area rural montanosa de la isla de Puerto Rico.

Akili Dada, a women's leadership organization based in Kenya, has been a grantee of the Global Fund since 2010. We are honored to be recognized and supported by an organization that furthers women's rights around the world. As a startup nonprofit, we have been working on entering the next phase of our story - as we serve more and more young women in Kenya with leadership training, we are proud to know that Global Fund for Women upholds the work we do. They helped fund our 1st annual strategic planning retreat in July 2010 and contributed again this year for an organizational development retreat for our women-led organization. The retreat brought together our staff (from Kenya and the U.S.), board members (from U.S., Kenya, and Uganda), scholars who have received our leadership training, and advisory council members. The result was an intensive and productive session of planning and strategizing.

We look forward to continuing to strengthen our ties with Global Fund as our two organizations work to empower women around the world.

The Great!

I've personally experience the results of this organization through the incredible support Akili Dada has received from Global Fund for Women and the feeling of community that has come from being a GFW grantee. They have contributed financially to Akili Dada but have also been wonderful supporters through online media and personal contacts. They clearly live the values they promote, and I appreciate their dedication, integrity, and tenacity.

The Global Fund for Women has graciously funded some of Roots of Health's work with women and children in the Philippines. The organization seems truly interested in our work and we really appreciate the fact that they are willing to fund existing projects. When contacted their staff have been friendly and efficient. As a grantee our organization, we have also received a list of possible donors, which has been helpful in our fundraising efforts.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that their donation has allowed us to continue our work in under-served communities in the Philippines. With it we have been able to keep providing reproductive health classes to mothers and teens, clinical services, nutritional support to the women and young people that we serve. Thank you GFW!

Yevgeniya Kozyreva: Global Found for Women is one of few structures in the world which purposefully and on a regular basis supports women's groups working on promotion of the female rights. At support Global Found for Women our group had an opportunity to organize women's organizations of Kazakhstan for a writing of the first and second alternative reports under the CEDAW Convention; to develop the bill « About the equal rights for women and men of Republic Kazakhstan » and to lobby for its acceptance in Parliament. This progressive, vital work for citizens of our country would be impossible without advisory and financial support Global Found for Women.

Global Fund for Women is a well-known organization in the region of South Caucasus. It is known as an organization assisting local women’s organizations and initiative groups to develop their capacities and through that to empower other women in the region. With the assistance of Global Fund for Women many women in Armenia developed their career skills, found jobs, have participated in the trainings on women’s rights and initiated their own projects and activities. The presence of GFW in our region is making a real difference and bringing very positive changes in the lifestyles of ordinary women. Thank you for empowering women and making them stronger!
