Share gender equality

It’s time to empower women and girls worldwide.

In God’s eyes, we are all equal. But for too long, women and girls have been held back - they are denied education and earning opportunities.

Now, as the climate crisis and Covid-19 threaten their communities, women are often on the frontline: running households, but struggling to earn a livelihood or protect themselves.

But we are the changemakers, and we can change this. By sharing what you can today, you will help power some truly life-changing projects. You’ll help girls get to school to discover their talents.

And you’ll enable women to create and run business enterprises, or learn new, weather-resistant agricultural techniques that will help them feed their families and gain financial independence.

With your solidarity, the future will finally be theirs to shape.

Share what you can to make us all equal.

Kumana's story

From economically vulnerable to empowered entrepreneur

In Konso, Ethiopia, drought caused by climate change has drastically impacted many livelihoods. Kumana Kurasho is one of a new generation of small-scale female entrepreneurs who earn their own living by making and selling aloe vera soap.

Kumana got her opportunity through the BRACED project which Christian Aid supports. not only do vital projects like this build the resilience of vulnerable communities against climate change, they also empower women to earn their own money.
