Donor Direct Action strengthens women’s rights organizations around the world by increasing access to funds, advocacy, and visibility. As activists and donors ourselves, we know the importance of minimum bureaucracy and maximum power and flexibility on the ground.
Donor Direct Action partners with frontline activists to strengthen women's rights around the world.
Nothing is more crucial than getting money to projects on the ground. Donor Direct Action knows how to get the funds where they are most needed and where they will make a real difference. I hope you will support these groups.
I have witnessed first hand the needs of women's rights organizations working on the front lines, where so much is done with such limited resources. Donor Direct Action enables anyone anywhere to help these organizations and make a real difference in the lives of women and girls around the world.
