Mama Cash has in recent years actively sought to support girls who take matters into their own hands.
In August 2015, Mama Cash, FRIDA | The Young Feminist Fund and MEMPROW brought together 30 emissaries from African girls’ rights initiatives. They emphasised the importance of keeping in mind that girls need trust and support to develop their own activism. The reality is that many girls grow up in an unsafe environment. That is why it is critical to ensure that they become as resilient as possible and have a place where they can meet each other and collaborate.
Mama Cash funds groups run with and by girls around the world and is part of the With and For Girls Collective. This funder’s collective is investing $1m each year in awards to grass-roots organisations that are successfully working on girls’ rights.
