Top 10 Social Enterprises Improving the Lives of Women, Girls

The more women and girls can receive a helping hand the better for the entire world’s future. It has been said time and time again that women and girls are the future of so many developing countries and yet they typically linger on the bottom rung of society.

Each year Women Deliver celebrates International Women’s Day by highlighting social enterprises that improve the lives of women and girls worldwide. Out of 25 very deserving organizations 10 made the final cut after public votes were cast. Winners were  announced last Friday.

The winners represent a global mix of organizations that range from helping young girls code to empowering the next generation of women leaders. Each winner will receive a full scholarship to attend Women Deliver’s conference in May that will be held in Malaysia.
