Spark’s mission is two-fold. We aim to increase the overall investment in women’s organizations around the world and we aim to increase the number of young people who give to women’s causes now and plan to continue in the long-term.
- We believe that investing in innovative, grassroots, women-led organizations can transform communities.
- We believe that investing a combination of money, time and connections can have catalytic results.
- We believe that the aggregation of small gifts can have an impact on intractable problems.
- We believe those addressing women’s equity and human rights should be diverse.
Based in Peru, Estrategia trains women in the manufacturing of pre-fabricated construction supplies. Participants receive income from the sale of cinder blocks and education in construction management and urban development.
