Supporting women to build better lives for themselves
 
 

2018 ANNUAL REPORT

Onward and Upward

 
 

The Global Women’s Project is proud and excited to continue advancing our mission of supporting women to gain access to the tools and resources they need to improve and determine their own lives.

We do this by finding lean and efficient ways of creating impact based on well- designed, scalable and replicable programs. This work is made possible by the support of the community, key operations team members and our incredibly committed volunteers. 

 

Our Impact

 
 

Nepal

In Nepal, we provided funding for all operational costs and majority of the training costs for three Rural Women’s Hubs run by the Women’s Foundation Nepal in the districts of Sunsari and Jhapa. This year over 1072 women have come to these Hubs to take part in local savings and loans circles, upskill through a variety of vocational and business workshops and short courses, and increase their capacity to participate in local governance through leadership and political participation training. 

Cambodia

In Cambodia, we continued to fund a second year of a digital literacy program for women and girls. In the past 18 months, 192 women and girls have taken part in basic computer and English language classes in our purpose-built computer and literacy lab, setting them up to capitalise on a burgeoning tourist economy and/or pursue higher education. This program was initially intended to run for three years with the aim of reaching 300 women and girls. It has successfully reached 64% of this target at the halfway mark. 

Right Hand Woman

To our grassroots partners, we continued to be Right Hand Woman - our name for a unique partnership model where we provide in-depth, cross-cutting support to our partners wherever it is needed. That means at once being a sounding board, a program design consultant, a knowledge sharer, a business analyst, a marketing team, a partnership broker, a confidant and friend. We invest our head, heart and hands in our partnerships, and a lot of human hours and effort.

Acknowledgements

We are ever grateful to our generous community of supporters and donors, our volunteers, our Board, our international partners, our business supporters and to everyone else who has made a contribution to our work during the year.
