How We Work

To bring about the kinds of changes that will help people live in a gender equal world and be more productive, we seek to understand the world’s inequities. Whether the challenge is sex trafficking in India or Human trafficking in Nepal or HIV in parts of Africa, we listen and learn so we can identify pressing problems that get too little attention. Then we consider whether we can make a meaningful difference with our influence and our investments.

Once an investment is established through a grant or an agreement, our program teams and grantees collaborate for its lifecycle. 

 

We primarily invest in two ways:
