“I think Womankind is one of the most effective and well-targeted charities. I am happy to give as much as I can whenever funds are available knowing, with absolute confidence, that all donations to Womankind are put to very good use.

Trusts and Foundations 

Support from charitable trusts and foundations provides vital funding for our partners in Africa and Asia – and makes a major impact on the lives of women and girls. It can also help us to work together to influence the policies and practices of governments and non-governmental organisations by sharing our knowledge and experiences.

From The Body Shop Foundation to The Sigrid Rausing Trust, trusts and foundations have provided valuable support for our work.
If you are a trustee, or have links to a trust or foundation which might be interested in supporting women’s rights, we’d love to work with you. By building strong partnerships we can achieve positive change for women and girls.

Our dedicated Trusts and Grants Manager, Louise Millward, will be happy to provide you with more information on the ways we can work together to help benefit the lives of women and girls and their communities. Please call Louise on 020 3567 5930 or send an email to
