When women have equal access to information and opportunity, anything is possible


Digital literacy

More than half of all women lack access to the online world and the benefits of being online. Providing digital skills training to help women gain digital literacy bringing new opportunities for them and their communities.



Entrepreneurship

Women make up half the world’s working-age population but generate only 37% of GDP. With support to make better use of the internet, women entrepreneurs can have a greater impact and generate wealth for themselves and their communities.



Leadership

Globally, only 36 women hold leadership positions as legislators, senior officials, and managers for every 100 men. Womenwill is helping change the ratio by providing training to women in the early stages of their career.



Workplace

Almost half of working-age women don’t take part in the formal economy. Womenwill provides workplace advocacy and skills training to bridge the participation gap, and help women and workplaces thrive.
