Our programs:

  • Focus on the whole person, i.e., they view girls and women in an integral manner
  • Enable girls and women to discover and live according to their inherent dignity
  • Originate and develop locally within communities
  • Have a proven record of success and extended community impact
  • Command local support, which helps ensure long-term sustainability of the programs
  • Require that those who benefit from the program pay part of the cost and give back to their communities.
Our priority is to ensure that the programs become self-sufficient and excel in transparency and accountability in the use of funds.


In addition to funding, the Foundation:

  • Strengthens the programs it identifies
  • Expands their effectiveness and community impact
  • Provides management skills
  • Strengthens their institutional procedures for accountability
  • Develops international and local cooperation.
