GFFW is a grant-making foundation that advances women’s human rights worldwide by funding projects that empower women economically, socially, politically and educationally — all of which are necessary for women to stand up for their own dignity and lead the changes needed in their communities that will ultimately end violence, discrimination and exploitation of women.
