Access to funding can be difficult for women.
At the ella fund, we believe that girls and women with a promising entrepreneurial project should have access to all the resources they need.
We strive to provide funding, mentorship and help to combat feelings of self-doubt to transform projects into reality.
In many societies, women and girls are disadvantaged. We face increased vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. We struggle to attain good health and face obstacles to receiving quality healthcare services due to unequal power relationships between men and women. We face experiences of physical, sexual and emotional violence.
At the ella fund, we support projects that aim to develop innovative healthcare solutions and/or enhance access to quality healthcare goods and services.
In many places, girls are the first to be excluded from education.
We believe that education is a key building block for women's empowerment. Education builds confidence, confers skills valuable for financial autonomy and leads to healthier communities.
We aim to support projects that promote education of all sorts - whether academic or vocational - and at all ages and all levels.
