Why We Invest In Women
“When we invest in women and girls, we are investing in the people who invest in everybody else. ”
- Melinda Gates
We want to build a better world for the next generation—
one with less poverty and more equality, where less people are sick, and where more children go to school.
We also know that when we invest in women, economies and communities thrive. Women invest twice as much of their income into their families than men (80% vs. 30-40%), and when women are paid wages that meet their basic needs, it leads to greater personal safety and better overall health and education for each generation.
