A Time To Give – Global Fund For Women

Today a group of 10 bloggers (including me) got together to talk about charities we like and support, you know, because of the Holidays and all. (This charity cyber event hop has been organized by Brynne from The Gathered Home.– Thanks, Brynne!). If you are arriving here from Cassie Bustamante’s site, welcome!

You might already know that a cause close to my heart is women’s rights. I am thankful everyday (literally) for the place I live in and the husband I married, but not all women have had that luck. There are many women that live in places where they can’t assert themselves or have freedom to make their own decisions. This is a cause of poverty and little education and why I want to talk today about the Global Fund For Women.

This organization stands behind grass roots movements for women’s human rights all over the world – movements that fight for gender equality that are created by women who are facing these issues every day. They help give funding that helps provide for the fundamental things like rent, computers, staffing, travel, training, security, and electricity. They also help connect these movements to other donors, as well as local or national women’s groups. These connections enable groups to share, learn, and rally together to strengthen movements for women’s rights.

The fund works on freedom from violence, economic and political empowerment, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Here is its financial information, and here are some of their results.

If you want to know about more charities we like and support, please, go to your next stop Cuckoo 4 Design.

    Thanks for highlighting a charity that is so critical and vital, especially during this political climate. Women’s rights are so important, and I know it’s sometimes easy to forget about the billions of women globally who need us to advocate on their behalf.

      Yes, I think we take our rights for granted and don’t understand that there are a lot of women that don’t have the luck we do. Thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks so much for joining in on the hop today, Mila! This hop is actually the first time I’d heard about the Global Fund for Women, but it sounds like they are doing wonderful work! And your Women for Women post is such a fantastic resource!
