Access for women leads to opportunity for all
We know when women realize the benefits of information, they create opportunities to learn, succeed, and be heard - not just for themselves, but for their families, communities, and society. According to research from the UN, when women have access to the internet it leads to significant economic benefits and breaks cycles of poverty.
But today, more than half of all women still lack access to the online world.
That’s one in two prevented from doing things we often take for granted - like checking tomorrow’s weather, learning a new skill or just exploring what they want, when they want.
We started Womenwill to help erase gender gaps by connecting women to the online world and tools to make the most of it. We develop and support programs for women across the digital literacy spectrum - training Internet Saathis in India to help women in rural villages get online, connecting women entrepreneurs in Indonesia, supporting women re-entering the workforce through Happy Back to Work in Japan, and our partnerships with groups like UN Women, World Pulse and the Global Fund for Women.
