Tell Justin Trudeau: Enable every woman to unlock her own potential

Girls and women in the world’s poorest countries are being held back from realising their full potential, because poverty is sexist. They are fighting for an equal chance to learn, equal opportunities to earn money, and equal control over their finances.

If every woman could unlock her own potential to work, earn and invest in the future, the impact would be revolutionary.


Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

Please invest in girls and women in the world’s poorest countries to unlock their full potential. Commit to a bold initiative at the G7 summit that enables at least 100 million women to learn, work and increase their independence.

Tell Congress: Pass the BUILD Act

The best tool for fighting extreme poverty is a good job. The bipartisan BUILD Act would bring tens of billions of private-sector dollars into the fight against extreme poverty by helping American entrepreneurs and investors do business in Africa, building infrastructure projects, creating first-time access to electricity, creating jobs, and expanding their reach in developing countries.
