Womankind Worldwide is a global women’s rights organisation working in partnership with women’s rights organisations and movements to transform the lives of women and girls.
Throughout the world, there are millions of women and girls who don’t have any choice about what they can do or say each day – simply because they are female.
Womankind Worldwide is working towards a world where every woman and girl can live free from violence and discrimination, have a say in the decisions affecting her life, and be free to know and claim her rights.
The charity strengthens and supports women’s rights organisations and movements in Africa and Asia by providing the tools and resources they need to change the lives of women, in the home, the workplace and the communities they live in.
They work with local partners to build successful projects, amplify women’s voices and share what’s working and they take collective action with women’s movements at international level.
Thanks to support received from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, Womankind is working with Setaweet, an Ethiopian feminist movement, to challenge the underlying causes of gender inequality in Ethiopian society. The project will see 10,000 secondary school students attend ‘Gendershops’ aimed at changing how boys and girls view and behave towards each other and reducing violence against women and girls in school and the wider community.
