WOMEN EMPOWERMENT FUND
In our spirit of supporting each other, we go beyond the conference itself. Understanding that a high level meeting costs money and knowing that we are stronger when we join together, WIN is grateful for all the support it receives in bringing women together. WIN in turn donates 3-5% of the income it receives to various other women's causes or to help women who could not otherwise afford to attend the conference.
Donations are made through the WIN Fund Initiative, which also receives contributions from individuals and companies. We invite you to make a difference by contributing so that together we can achieve so much more.
As we go beyond the conferences and our meetings, let's empower even more women around the world.
WIN provides support to special projects targeting issues faced by women and girls around the world. Some of these projects have been initiated by past scholarship winners who gain inspiration and tools to accelerate their work at WIN. If you have a project you think WIN should support, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Daughters of Kenya
This platform brings together around 100 women and men of all generations for three days of learning, sharing of experiences, good practices, and networking for the advancement of women. The main goal has been to develop the potential of women and young women, without any discrimination in social status, so that they can become the main actors of their own development and help raise up their families, their communities, and their organisations.
Founded by Bandita Thapa, Women Foundation Nepal focuses on first empowering and finally improving the existing support system of deprived and marginalized communities through education, empowerment as well as ensuring entrepreneurship opportunity in Nepal.
Daughters of Kenya is a non-profit organization working towards improving the lives of vulnerable girls and young mothers in Kenya. They work to ensure that every orphaned and vulnerable girl is able to experience the love and security that only a family can provide. Their mission focuses on education, ending violence against children and economic sustainability.
Maison Shalom was founded in 1993 by Marguerite (Maggi) Barankitse, in the aftermath of the civil war. WIN raised €6,000 to help provide a more sustainable living environment for the children and volunteers of the community. The funds were used to provide 20 cows, which were allocated to 20 fostering families with an average of 8 members. In 2016, Maggi Barankitse was named as the inaugural laureate of the $1 million Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity.
Global Foundation for Women & Development
The WIN Girls Project awarded scholarships to deserving students to allow them to benefit from higher education for a minimum of 3 years. During this period, girls were provided with college fees and a small stipend each month for books and study materials. Each scholarship holder committed to reaching out to at least 10 other girls every year to encourage them to understand the benefits of studying, not getting married too young and helping others in society.
The WIN Scholarship programme of the WIN Fund offers free or subsidized conference participation as well as solidarity tickets, to women who exemplify the potential to become leaders of tomorrow and to proven leaders operating in difficult economic environments. Despite our small size we have awarded more than 1,000 scholarships and supported numerous initiatives.
