On a mission to protect our environment, end the climate crisis, and ensure a just, thriving world by empowering women’s leadership.

In some of the most environmentally threatened places in the world, WEA leaders are defending forests and rivers, saving threatened indigenous seeds, launching sustainable farms, conserving coral reefs, and protecting land rights.

WEA takes a different approach than investing in a water well that might fail, or providing a one-time loan that could leave a woman in debt and without options. Our model identifies grassroots women leaders working on the frontlines to reverse climate change and protect their communities' natural resources, livelihoods, and health. We invest in their long-term leadership through training, funding, and networks of support.
