Established in 2000, Feminenza is an international non-profit organisation which spans the full spectrum of socio-economic groups with a commitment to provide all women in the world with the opportunities they need to live productive and developing lives. Approximately 500 women and men participate in the initiative and our current projects are focused on countries such as Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi and the Congo, as well as the Middle East, Europe and North America.
For the most part Feminenza’s expertise is delivered pro-bono to developing countries. The list of beneficiary countries grows every year, as does the number of women ready and willing to offer their services for the betterment of other women around the world.
In the last four years, following the huge demand for Feminenza expertise, there has been a significant shift in the operating framework. Every Feminenza chapter is on course to becoming a charity. Educational content, training standards, corporate oversight and audit is undertaken by Feminenza International (the standards body). To ensure that standards are continually being upgraded, every chapter is licensed by Feminenza International. Within that license specific goals are set for the continuing upgrade of standards and capacity to be made available to women within the domicile of the chapter. Should a particular chapter need financial assistance in order to address significant local needs, its activities are subsidized by the rest of Feminenza worldwide.
