Women's mental health has long been underfunded, undervalued and
under-acknowledged in empowerment work. Access to mental health resources
or care directly impacts a woman’s voice, choice and power– all of which are
key indicators for women's empowerment.
Our goal is simple: to provide 50,000 women and girls globally with access to
empowerment and mental health resources by June 2025.
Women and girls are change agents in communities all over the world. We know that a woman's mental health and well-being impacts how she is able to make change for herself, her family, and members of her community. We have been funding women’s mental health and empowerment work since 2012 through our work in Rwanda, we re-affirmed that commitment in 2018 when we lost our founder to death by suicide, and we continue our support of women’s mental health and wellbeing and its connection to empowerment.
