Women Thrive Worldwide

About them  Women Thrive Alliance, an initiative of Women Thrive Worldwide, is a leading voice for global women's rights. They work to empower grassroots women so their perspectives and solutions shape local, national, and global policies to help women and their families break free from poverty, violence, and inequality. Their Vision They envision a world where women, girls, men and boys enjoy equal rights and opportunities.  They believe that a safer, more prosperous and equitable world can only be achieved when women and girls assert their rights.  Who They Are Women Thrive Alliance is a global network of 230 member organizations located in over 50 countries. These organizations are led by local change-makers who believe that women and girls should live free from violence, enjoy quality education, and achieve economic empowerment. They believe that by challenging the status quo, they can achieve greater equality for all.  What They  Do They  support their Alliance members by making sure that they are equipped with the skills, knowledge, resources and connections they need to reach their full potential as gender equality and women’s rights advocates.  Their “Raise Your Voice” capacity-building program provides a global learning community where members access tailored tools, coaching, and trainings on fundraising, communications, and advocacy. Through their in person and online courses, members connect with each other, share their knowledge and learn new skills. Their “Achieve SDG 5” advocacy program supports advocates in designing and implementing strategies to ensure that grassroots women and girls are an integral part of national efforts to implement SDG 5. Members collect data and develop evidence-based messages on women and girls’ needs, priorities and solutions; connect and mobilize with other advocates; and strategically engage with local and national decision-makers. Together, they work to make sure that grassroots women and girls’ voices, concerns and recommendations are heard and taking into account within United Nations decision-making.  Their Values Accessibility: They break down the barriers that prevent grassroots organizations from connecting with one another and accessing resources.  Solidarity: Their support goes beyond technical. They provide a community in which members can find supporters, friends and allies.  Ownership: They ensure their work is driven by the inputs and priorities of members. Their work is built on genuine and mutually beneficial partnership between members and Alliance staff.  Collaboration & Learning: They believe that each member holds knowledge worth sharing, and that collaboration and exchange allows them to all to learn and grow.  What Sets them Apart? They represent hundreds of organizations and thousands of change-makers, and their work is guided by their priorities and needs.  They are a collective voice that brings together change-makers from more than 50 countries. Together, their members build solidarity and support networks and unite around opportunities and actions that advance their common objective of reaching full gender equality by 2030.  They believe that advocacy is a powerful tool for change. They build successful advocacy strategies to bring grassroots women and girls into decision-making spaces from which they are traditionally excluded.  Join them!
