From Monique Villa, CEO Thomson Reuters Foundation
Last month we asked for your support as we committed to help three extraordinary NGOs to empower women around the world.
Since then, thanks to Catapult, an innovative crowd-funding website, we have now raised $ 30,000 USD, providing 100% of the funding needed.
Together we have created educational and employment solutions for 127 women in Cambodia, helped 30,000 women acquire their own land in India, and given critical support to the first and only women’s farming organization in South Sudan.
Special thanks to our Thomson Reuters colleagues who took part in the initiative - your donations were doubled in value thanks to the generosity of the Thomson Reuters personal match-funding scheme.
Your support on this has been great.
