Our Approach

We find, fund, strengthen, and share powerful women-driven solutions that can transform lives.


We find and welcome outreach from dynamic grassroots women’s organizations that focus on one or more of the four key issues that WomenStrong believes must be addressed for women and girls to realize their full potential: Girls’ Education and Empowerment, Women’s Health, Violence Against Women and Girls, and Economic Security and Opportunity. We invite these organizations to participate in WomenStrong’s Learning Lab.


We fund organizations wishing to pilot initiatives or replicate effective programs. We also provide financial support to enable Learning Lab members to share what they have learned with each other and with a wider audience. Please see our Grantmaking page for further details about what and who we fund.


Receiving a grant from WomenStrong also provides opportunities for capacity-strengthening and technical support. Such opportunities take a variety of forms, such as online webinars, on-on-one technical assistance, and peer-led trainings; essentially, our aim is to support our partner organizations in improving their ability to design, evaluate, and inform others about their programs.


The goal of our Learning Lab is to provide an active and vibrant forum where WomenStrong and our partner organizations can discover, develop, and disseminate the most effective solutions so women and girls can thrive. WomenStrong’s partners from different organizations, geographies, and contexts come together in our four learning areas to collaborate, share their experiences, hear about similar challenges and successes, and learn from each other.

About WomenStrong International

WomenStrong International finds, funds, strengthens, and shares women-driven solutions that will transform lives in urban communities. Our partners start by listening to women, who know best what they need in order to thrive. Then we bring these organizations together into a Learning Lab, to develop, test, sharpen, and disseminate their solutions. Through our collective learning and sharing, WomenStrong is building a global community of organizations better equipped to advance the rights and wellbeing of women and girls. Learn More
