AVI is extremely grateful to be the recipient of generous funds raised by ‘Locked Down Trivia‘ on Friday 22 May. Registrations to this online event are now open and we encourage everyone to get involved in this fantastic initiative.
The COVID-19 crisis has disproportionately affected women in developing countries with increased risk of infection, intimate partner violence, job losses and vulnerable work. This is further compounded by limited social protections, less access to sexual and reproductive health services, less access to formal safety nets and finance and an increased burden of unpaid care work.
AVI’s work supporting women’s economic empowerment by helping to establish and grow women’s micro and small businesses helps women gain financial independence and break the cycle of gender inequality. We know when women are financially independent they can send their kids to school, lift up their families and communities, have a voice and control their own destiny.
Every contribution, no matter how large or small, will help drive positive change for generations to come.
Thank you in advance for your generous donation.
