Our partners serve as a catalyst for social change. Through our partners’ involvement with WomenChangeMakers, our fellow’s are able to create sustainable and responsible programs for the betterment of their communities. By contributing to WomenChangeMakers, companies and institutions have the power to accelerate social progress while building their reputation as socially minded and women-friendly organizations.
Since 2012, the Trafigura Foundation has co-funded and been a keystone partner of the WomenChangeMakers Programme. The Foundation has been a guiding force for the initiative, helping to identify, support and connect our Fellows in order to scale-up and empower more women in their communities.
