RESULTS Educational Fund

RESULTS EDUCATIONAL FUND

We create long-term solutions to poverty by supporting programs that address its root causes — lack of access to medical care, education, or opportunity to move up the economic ladder. We do this by empowering ordinary people to become extraordinary voices for the end of poverty in their communities, the media, and the halls of government.

Rita Fund

RITA FUND

 

The idea for The Rita Fund grew out of the report “Where is the Money for Women’s Rights” by the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID). The report analyzes the funding landscape for and the challenges facing women’s rights organizations. The Rita Fund strives to respond to the “funding gap” detailed in AWID’s report, by creating a reliable, non-restrictive funding source for women’s funds operating worldwide.

We think education is the starting point to solving almost every other problem, including reducing diseases and ending poverty, and eventually increasing the number of women in leadership positions throughout the world.
