Women and Girls

The funder collaborations working with women and girls support movements, organisations and projects focused on their unique needs and on working towards achieving equity.



Rosa's vision is of a society in which women and girls are safe, healthy, and have equal opportunities at work, at home and in public life.

Rosa helps to strengthen specialist women’s organisations so they can meet the needs of the women and girls they work with. They do this by bringing in new sources of funding, investing resources into the women’s sector, and building a community of organisations rooted in the power of collective action.
