Yesterday, Women Deliver opened voting for the 25 top Social Enterprises for Women and Girls. These 25 organizations are doing some incredible work, and using innovative approaches to address some major challenges facing women, including maternal health. Women Deliver invites voters to select up to three choices from the 25 top groups.
From Women Deliver:
This year, we are asking global advocates like you to vote on three of the 25 enterprises listed below that you believe are truly making a difference for girls and women. Voting closes on March 6th at 12pm EST. Women Deliver worked in partnership with Echoing Green, a global nonprofit that provides seed funding and technical assistance to emerging social entrepreneurs, to select these 25 social enterprises from the semifinalists of the Echoing Green Fellowship Program. The top 10 social enterprises will be awarded a full scholarship to attend the Women Deliver 2013 conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (May 28-30, 2013) and compete in the Social Enterprise Challenge and “Pitch-Off” on May 30th. Winners will also be given fast-track access to TrustLaw Connect, a program of the Thomson Reuters Foundation that connects lawyers looking to do pro bono work with social enterprises and NGOS in need of legal assistance.
