Introducing the most life-changing network you’ll ever be part of

When we support and empower refugee women, the entire community benefits. We see it every day.

That’s why we’re proud to launch the Leading Women Fund - a unique and dynamic community of donors committed to supporting refugee women all over the world.

Every donation to the Fund goes directly to projects that empower women, building their resilience and providing opportunities for them to realise their potential.

But that’s not all.

When you donate, you’ll connect with a network of dynamic Australian women who are passionate about empowering female refugees around the world. You’ll be part of a community that will be a force for change.

  • You’ll have the opportunity to trial and co-create our world-first app, Connecting Worlds, which gives Australian donors the chance to have text conversations with the refugee women supported by the Fund.
  • You’ll be invited to networking and learning events (in real life and online) with other leading women, such as Australia for UNHCR’s newest Ambassador and Boost Juice founder, Janine Allis.
  • You will have the opportunity to contribute your skills and knowledge to shape future Leading Women’s Fund projects, co-creating the initiatives that will help change refugee women’s lives.

For its first project, the Leading Women Fund will support Syrian refugee women in Jordan. One-third of these women have found themselves alone, as head of their household, with families to support. They are struggling to survive; some are forced to beg on the streets with their children.

A $3,000 donation to the Fund (or $230 every four weeks) is enough to support a refugee woman and her family for a year - enabling her to keep food on the table, her children in school and giving her the chance to plan for a better future.  

For Hanaa, a 27-year-old single mother living in Jordan with her two young daughters, cash assistance like this is her only means of support - and it’s life-changing. 

“Without this help, I don’t know how difficult my situation would be.”
