Together, we are unstoppable. 

Strong Women Strong World is a network of Australian women who believe that uplifting women and girls is the key to ending extreme poverty and building a more stable, just and peaceful world. 

Join us and engage in meaningful conversations, share extraordinary experiences, and create lasting connections that will drive positive change. Together we can pave the way for a future where the voice of every woman and girl is heard. Where her potential is realised and her dreams become reality. 

Every woman and girl has the right to reach their full potential. 

Women and girls living in poverty face a range of obstacles that stop them from pursuing their goals and creating a better future for themselves and their families. 

Water crisis

The global water crisis hits girls and women the hardest. They spend an estimated 200 million hours every day collecting water – hours they can’t spend getting an education, learning a skill or earning an income. 

Education deficit 

Around the world 129 million girls are out of school. Poverty, early marriage and gender-based violence force girls to drop out early, as do inadequate or non-existent hygiene and sanitation facilities.  

Harmful practices

Traditional cultural practices such as female genital mutilation and forced early marriage are still prevalent. Every minute, 22 girls under the age of 18 are married, and the number is rising due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. 

Lack of opportunity

Nearly 1 billion women don’t have access to financial services. And more than 70 percent of women-owned small and medium-sized businesses can’t access the funds they need to get ahead.

When women and girls can thrive, everyone wins. 

Empowering women and girls is an essential component of all World Vision’s work. That's because we know that when they gain equal access and opportunity, children are better cared for, families are stronger, and communities are more prosperous. Find out how you can invest in women and girls.
