We Want a World where All Girls can Grow Up to Become Powerful Women!

Despite some progress made to achieve worldwide gender equality, girls still face many challenges and struggle to fully develop themselves and become the powerful women they deserve to be. Too little is done to help them; yet they are our future and their voices should count as much as any other.

That’s why on the International Day of the Girl Child, we paid tribute to all the amazing and inspiring girls and adolescent girls who decided that they had enough of sexism and patriarchy and chose to go their own way to fight for global causes, such as Marley Dias, Bana Alabed, Payal Jangid, Nada Al-Ahdal, Licypriya Kangujam and Greta Thunberg.

Founded in 2017, Manushya Foundation serves as a bridge to engage, mobilise, and empower agents of change by: connecting humans through inclusive coalition building and; by developing strategies focused at placing local communities’ voices in the centre of human rights advocacy and domestic implementation of international human rights obligations and standards.


Manushya Foundation strengthens the solidarity and capacity of communities and grassroots to ensure they can constructively raise their own concerns and provide solutions in order to improve their livelihoods and the human rights situation on the ground.
