Equality Makes the World a Better Place

UN Women are the only global agency dedicated to gender equality and we aim to support them by raising awareness about the importance of gender equality and financially donating to their flagship programmes.

UN Women is the UN organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established in 2010 to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.

Why Now?

We are inspired to be bold and take on this monumental challenge in hope to transform our world by putting both genders in the #sameboat

UN Women

UN Women supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to implement these standards. It stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life, focusing on five priority areas:

  • increasing women’s leadership and participation;
  • ending violence against women;
  • engaging women in all aspects of peace and security processes;
  • enhancing women’s economic empowerment; and
  • making gender equality central to national development planning and budgeting.

YOUR GENEROSITY MAKES A DIFFERENCE

As we prepare to attempt this world first in December 2019, we will be not only raising funds for our adventure but we are also aiming to raise £100,000 for our chosen charity UN Women UK.
