Case Study – Women Reaching Women

Images from our closing conference with Oxfam, the WI and the Minister for DFID in April 2011


The Women Reaching Women project was a three year project with the WI and Oxfam, funded by the Department for International Development.

The objective of the project was to explore how we could enable the WI – a membership organisation of 210,000 women in the UK – to engage, understand and build awareness about the disproportionate impact of global poverty and climate change on women.

The Everyone Foundation played a key role in shaping the project with the WI team and colleagues from Oxfam. We also developed an action learning approach to the evaluation of the three-year initiative.
