"That call from a mobile phone in the middle of a cemetery was really the beginning of my digital awakening. And it helped inspiring me to found W4 in 2012 (...). W4 stands for Women's WWW and we're Europe's first crowdfunding platform dedicated to girls' and women's empowerment in the world." "From the Philippines to Pakistan, from Cameroun to Cambodia, the world is being made better by the impact of two powerful growing trends and they're arguably two of the most important trends in the 21st century: digital technologies and women's empowerment. Together they lie at the heart of our work at W4." "Here we are in the 21st century and yet women and girls still bear the greater burden of poverty and suffer widespread abuses of their rights. Incredibly and unacceptably violence against girls and women remains a global pandemic, the most widespread human's rights violation" "The good news is that a global women's empowerment movement has been gaining a momentum. The world is waking up. Consistently, from the micro to the macro level, it has been proven that when we educate girls, when we protect girls' and women's human rights, when we promote gender equality, we drive socio-economic progress."
