Hegg Hoffet Programme
The Hegg Hoffet Programme assists graduate women (and in special cases tertiary women students) who have been displaced as a result of war, political upheaval or other serious emergencies. For more information about the Hegg Hoffet Programme please click here.
Teachers for Rural Futures
GWI is working to increase the number of girls that go to school. In rural areas of Uganda, a huge number of girls are not enrolled in school or forced to drop out, in part due to a lack of women teachers. Our project will support 50 young women from rural Uganda to become qualified secondary school teachers and ambassadors for girls’ education. This will provide access to quality education for 2000 children per year and vital role models to improve girls’ enrollment.
Bina Roy Partners in Development Programme (BRPID)
The Bina Roy Partners in Development Programme supports projects that empower girls and women through education and leadership development. BRPID grants are awarded to GWI National Federations and Associations from developing countries on a competitive basis.
