Women of the Year Foundation

Charity description

Women of the Year Foundation  logo
The Women of the Year Foundation was set up in 2001 to offer financial and practical support through small grants, to enable women in the UK and internationally to improve their lives and contribute to their local communities.

We have been able to help women in the UK and abroad, to start over and improve their lives either through retraining or in business. The projects have been diverse and include:
  • Providing training, spinning equipment and business start up funding for a farmer to develop a co-operative spinning business using wool from her flock of rare sheep
  • Buying looms and textiles for a women’s co-operative in India and providing training to weave fabrics to help the women to break out of the poverty trap
  • Kickstart funding for an accessories business which has since won awards and high profile contracts
  • Support for Street Cred, a charity working in the East End of London providing microfinance to groups of women setting up small businesses
