Review for Global Fund for Women, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Global Fund for Women is a wonderful organization that supports women's advocacy organizations around the world. What makes their work unique is the way that they connect women's organizations that are doing innovative work to uplift marginalized women with the necessary funds to further enhance their capacity to initiate change. Rather than choosing to fund projects or groups that are of interest to them, they really listen to what women leaders around the world are saying they need and envision. Global Fund for Women decides to support the solutions and initiatives that have been locally innovated by women's groups. More non-profits should follow their model--listening to and supporting local women's initiatives--rather than trying to design their own initiatives from afar, lacking a whole, integrated understanding of the complex issues that affect women's human rights.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I work to connect women leaders who are the cornerstones of change in their communities to networking opportunities, resources, and knowledge needed to address issues of land, food, and water in the face of global climate change.
