Activists

A recent survey by the Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID) found that more than 75% of women's organizations had an annual income of less than $100,000; 36% had less than $25,000. Limited access to funding and other support weakens women's organizations' ability to sustain their impact, wasting vital benefits they could offer.
