With and For Girls Awards

The With and For Girls Collective is a group of eight organisations united by a common belief that girls are agents of change. Comic ReliefEMpower, Mama Cash, NoVo Foundation, Plan International UK, The Global Fund for Children, Nike Foundation, and Stars Foundation – the Collective’s convening partner – have come together to co-create a global awards initiative to find and fund locally-led girl-centred organisations working with and for girls.

Despite the critical role that women and girls play in sustainable development, the World Bank estimates that less than 2 cents of every $1 spent on international aid is directed towards adolescent girls, and it is estimated that only about 1% of all official aid, and an even smaller portion of humanitarian assistance, goes directly to the global south.

The Collective demonstrates that donors can fund in a meaningful way, allowing grassroots girl-led organisations to receive the flexible funding they so desperately need. 

Use the filters on this page to discover more about our network of With and For Girls Award recipients and how they are using the flexible award funding and capacity building support.
