The Cherie Blair Foundation for Women is working globally to provide women entrepreneurs with access to networks, finance and business development support
The Foundation is currently working in East Africa, the Middle East and Asia on activities that aim to support women entrepreneurs, including the following:
- Women Mean Business Conference
- Women and Mobile: A Global Opportunity
- Mentoring Women in Business
- Fostering Young Israeli Women Entrepreneurs
- Sunny Money for Women
- Business Development Centre for Women
- Nablus Women Entrepreneurs
Our vision is for a world where women have equal access to the tools and support needed to establish and grow successful businesses. By supporting women entrepreneurs, we are building a brighter future for families, communities and economies.
The Foundation's mission is to strengthen the capacity of women entrepreneurs in countries where they lack equal opportunities so they can grow their businesses and become greater contributors to their economies.
Women with economic security and independence have greater control over their own and their children's lives.
Economic empowerment also gives women an influential voice in tackling injustice and discrimination in their own communities and in wider society.
