Founded by our Women's Network, the Girls’ Impact Fund paves the way for a new approach to how we support girls, channelling specific funding and activities designed for, and with, girls.
The Girls’ Impact Fund will prioritise approaches that are led by girls, and which help them to become more empowered. We’ll listen to girls about their lived experiences and the challenges they face, and work with them to make sure their needs come first.
As part of the initiative, we’ll ensure resources are held by girls and local organisations – supporting our efforts towards a locally-led approach and more equitable partnerships. We’ll also use funding to make sure girls’ empowerment and gender equality are further embedded into our existing and new programmes, support advocacy led by girls to push for the change they want to see, and build the capacity and resource required to do this work.
