Women and girls around the world constantly face gender discrimination, inequality and poverty. This year alone, there are estimated to be 388 million women and girls worldwide living in extreme poverty.
Since 2013, our dedicated Women for the World community have changed countless lives worldwide, helping provide education, developing livelihoods and improving healthcare and protection for some of the most vulnerable women and girls in marginalised communities.
We invite you to take a stand and join thousands of Australians by fundraising or donating to Women for the World. Only together can we give our sisters in need the support they truly deserve.
