What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Women Changemakers for Education

We unleash the potential of women and girls through leadership, education and fellowship.
Fellowships are awarded to 10 women per two year cycle who are between 22 - 32 years old. Each Fellow has graduated from a degree program relevant to girls' education and women's empowerment. Each operates a small grass roots program focusing on girls' education and women's empowerment. The Fellowship includes: 1) Leadership training, 2) Mentorship, 3) Seed funning for grass roots programs, 4) Access to global networks, 5) peer partnerships. The program began in Ghana, West Africa in 2020 with plans for global expansion through 2027. To date, through the small grans program alone, over 72,000 people have been reached at the grass roots, national and international levels.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Launched in 2020, our primary goal is to unleash the power of women and girls through leadership, education, and fellowship. To that end, we identify powerful young women thought leaders who are also grounded by their grass roots programs supporting girls' education. We offer a comprehensive two year program of leadership training, professional mentoring, small program grants, peer partnerships and conference tuitions to enhance their drive for sustainable change. Together, we are building a future where every girl has access to quality education and every woman has the opportunity to fulfill her potential."

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
