Women Deliver Top 25 social enterprises for women and children

21 FEBRUARY 2013 - Every year, in honour of International Women’s Day, Women Deliver highlights the global progress being made for girls and women. In 2011, our Women Deliver 100 list spotlighted 100 inspiring people who work every day to improve the lives of girls and women. In 2012, we featured 50 organizations and projects delivering for girls and women. This year, we will bring attention to 25 social enterprises that are changing the lives of girls and women around the world.

The Women Deliver (WD) website is highlighting 25 bold and innovative social enterprises that are addressing issues of health, gender equality, education, environmental sustainability, and more. WD worked in partnership with Echoing Green, a global nonprofit that provides seed funding and technical assistance to emerging social entrepreneurs, to select these 25 social enterprises from the semifinalists of Echoing Green’s Fellowship Program.
