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. Aida Iris Cruz Alicea, Presidenta Junta Consultiva

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.

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!

I can't talk about Global Fund for Women without talking about people there. In last seven years that I'm part of Reconstruction Women's Fund from Serbia and continuously cooperate with GWF, I had a chance to meet 3 Program Directors and 2 Program Officers for Europe and Central Asia (Annie, Angelika, Violeta, Katka, Betsy) and to be amazed with the enthusiasm, energy, creativity, dedication, wisdom, strong feminist politics that I saw in each of them. If GWF respects such a human/woman values that these people bring with themselves, I'm not surprised that they are the champions of the global social change.

GO FOR IT!!!

In continuous support to AUTONOMY of women's organizations in Serbia, which is one of the most precious thing that one foundation can do.

Based on my personal experience with GWF, I wouldn't change anything. I would always advice the constant introspection and self-critique in the sake of "not resting on our laurels", but I would never forget to constantly applaud to such a great things that we all together did so far.

I have been acquainted with people of GFW for 11 years already, in a variety of positions: trainee, country advisor, colleague, grantee. In my perspective, GEW's special merit is that She manages to maintain an unbroken link between ultimate receivers and the elite of global women's movement. If we extend this chain with including donors of GFW, we will see that She supports both ends in their activity for such a worthy cause as ensuring rights and freedoms of the majority and democracy building worldwide. It is important to emphasize specially that GEW understands the specifics of the region of Eastern Europe and countries of post-Soviet space and has been contributing to the empowerment of women and girls for many years. GFW recognized the inportance of grasssroots level participation in the process of democracy building and has been supporting rural women's groups to the present.

I have special closeness with GFW as their contribution in the development of women's movement in Georgia always increased the successfulness of the activism of our organization; besides we have been grantee of GFW and experienced womderful partnership based on mutual understanding and complete trust.

As an activist working in NGO in Central and Eastern Europe and Cetral Asia I must say that the support of Global Fund contributed to the strengthening of the feminist movement in our region. There are very few and less Foundations who support organizations in the CEE and CA countries.

As an active volunteer with Kayan-Feminist Organization, I would like to thank the Global Fund for Women for supporting all of Kayan's activities in advancing the role of Palestinian Women in Israel. It has been a pleasure working with the GFW. Many of our projects have been made possible through GFW funding, including our most recent two-day seminar for Palestinian feminist leaders of grassroots community initiatives. Thank you GFW for being our partner!

"GFW is not only a donor that supports Nazra for Feminist studies( www.nazra.org) but aslo a partner in all steps that were taken since Nazra was established 4 years ago. GFW has provided Nazra with the start point for its work and continued supporting Nazra not only by funding but with networking, resources and mentoring . In a critical time in Egypt which is witnessing a major transition into democracy. The work of Nazra is very important at that time to guarantee mainstreaming gender in policies and programmes in new Egypt"
GFW gave tremendous support and solidarity from day one of egypt revolution and till now

My fundraising agency has served the Global Fund for Women for at least a decade, and I was personally involved in the work during the first several years. For an organization of such modest size, the Fund's reach is truly global. As the website says, "Since 1987 we have awarded over $71 million to 3,800 women's organizations in 167 countries." That's an astonishing record, and I've learned about a number of the group's well-chosen projects through contacts I've made in developing countries during extensive travels around the world for most of the past decade.
