Meet Our Members
Over the summer, Women Thrive Alliance members launched a global campaign for gender equality, #AchieveSDG5.
All around the world, poverty and discrimination prevent girls and young women from accessing the quality education they need and deserve. We spoke to William Gati, from Alliance member JS FUND FOR HOPE in Ghana, about the challenges facing girls in reaching education in Ghana.

At Women LEAD, we strive to reach Sustainable Development Goal 5 or the goal to “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls,” by equipping young women with the skills and tools required to be change-makers in their community.
At the United Nations last week, we heard governments stress the importance of supporting women and girls around the world, but it's going to take a lot more than talk to achieve gender equality by 2030.
