By supporting women entrepreneurs, we're building a brighter future

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:

Our vision

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.

Our mission

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.

Our rationale

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.


To get a feel for what the Foundation's projects are really about, see some of the wonderful images conveying the stories of the women we work with, bright, talented and with the potential to reach the next level.
