Ringing in the New Year 1,000 Strong for Girls and Women
In May 2016 Women Deliver launched Deliver for Good, a global campaign that applies a gender lens to the Sustainable Development Goals to fuel concrete action for girls and women. The beauty of Deliver for Good is that it focuses on the whole girl and the whole woman—not just her health needs, her educational needs, or her rights. And it does so via twelve high-yielding investment areas. We have almost reached 1,000 sign-ons to Deliver for Good, that is 1,000 people across the world committed to changing the world as we know it for girls and women. We invite you to join us in this movement and to make your commitment to girls and women.
we're almost there!
