Work holistically

We believe the best way to solve complex economic and social problems is to look at them from multiple angles. That’s why we do much more than fund programs—we take a holistic approach to all our work.

For example, to stop the violence against women and girls, we help them to escape immediate danger AND we teach the next generation how to create safer relationships over the long-term. We encourage governments to create stronger anti-violence policies. We research new approaches to ending violence, and train service providers in the best practices. We support grassroots groups to network and learn from one another. We challenge the gender inequities that lead to violence against women. And we raise public awareness by sharing stories from real women and girls, and by encouraging our supporters to speak out for change.
