Join The WomenStrong Learning Community

Since WomenStrong began in 2015, we have seen our founding members learn from each other as they adapt and improve their programs. Our Learning Community codifies this knowledge-sharing process and allows more participants to engage, going forward.

The WomenStrong Learning Community offers the opportunity for organizations and individuals to strengthen their work by sharing their knowledge and experience with others focused on the same set of issues. Participants can engage in our Learning Community both digitally and in person through webinars, roundtables, workshops, and retreats. Our digital portal will serve as a home for tools and resources, discussions, and other community activities. Activities are organized in four Learning Labs: Girls’ Education & Empowerment, Women’s Health, Violence against Women and Girls, and Economic Opportunity.

Anyone eager to learn and/or share what works to empower women and girls living in extreme urban poverty is welcome to join our Community. We are looking for interested individuals working with NGOs, educational institutions, local and national governments, and donor organizations. Because our Learning Community is largely housed through our online portal, participants may be located in any geographic region.

The Learning Community, run by our Knowledge and Program Manager Julia Fan (, will launch online in Spring 2019, with initial grants to be disbursed in Spring/Summer 2019.


Participants meeting WomenStrong’s requirements may be invited to apply for a grant to pilot, replicate, or share their solutions. Those receiving grants will be afforded additional opportunities to share knowledge and build organizational capacity. To learn more about grants, please click here.
