About this grant

The goal of the Vital Voices Global Partnership is to ensure full participation of women in the development of their countries. Vital Voices provides women across the globe with the leadership skills, networks and resources they need to improve the societies in which they live. As the organization nears its fifth anniversary in July 2005, it is focusing on institutional advancement and development.Multiyear funding will enable Vital Voices to upgrade its communications systems and office equipment; expand human resources and program policies and procedures; hire a senior director of development; broaden its work with women from Central Europe and Eurasia; and produce branded materials to share with women who, in turn, will use them to train other women in political participation, economic independence and human rights.Since 2000, Vital Voices has pilot-tested and built training programs that now include four cross-cutting areas: Europe/Eurasia programs, Middle East and Afghanistan programs, Combating Human Trafficking, and the Global Leadership Network.
