Gender Equality

Goal 5: Gender Equality

Women and girls continue to suffer from discrimination around the world, despite significant progress towards gender equality under the UN Millennium Development Goals.

Gender equality is required for a peaceful and sustainable world, so SDG Number 4, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, helps provide women and girls with access to education, skills and training facilities, public health, and employment.

Taking part in one of our Women’s Empowerment Projects gives you the chance to take part in a sustainable project that aims to yield long-term results the community can build on into the future.

We have seen that giving women more active roles in society improves their lives as well as the community as a whole.
