Meet The Most Effective NGO's For Women


As we’ve traveled the world we’ve come to understand the importance of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that work to provide and sustain women’s advancement. We know or have worked with numerous NGOs that are effective and highly respected in the international development field.  We include those with which we have a history, having met their leaders and seen their work on the ground.  We also include organizations for which we have received enthusiastic referrals from our peers and trusted leaders in the field.

We think of these NGOs as our partners in this endeavor and highly recommend them to you.

We are adding NGOs as we meet them.  We will also provide filters as to their fields of work and geography that will make it easier for you to navigate according to your interests.
