Gender Equality

Our activities

The foundation supports projects which focus on providing girls equal opportunities. The emerging global consensus is that despite some progress, real change has been very slow for the majority of women and girls in the world. Today, not a single country can claim to have achieved gender equality.

Women and girls continue to be undervalued

They work more and earn less and have fewer choices; and experience multiple forms of violence at home and in public spaces.

Did you know?

  • Women earn 23% less than men globally.
  • Women occupy only 24% of parliamentary seats worldwide.
  • 1 in 3 have experiences physical or sexual violence and 200 M of girls-women have suffered genital mutilation.

“Gender equality is a means of redefining and transforming power that will yield benefits for all. It is time to stop trying to change women, and to start changing the systems and power imbalances that prevent them from achieving their potential.”

António Guterres, UN Secretary-General
