Women’s WorldWide Web Crowdfunding Platform

W4 (W4.org, which stands for Women’s WorldWide Web) is a non-profit organization and Europe’s first crowdfunding platform dedicated girls’ and women’s human rights and empowerment!

W4 works in both developing and developed countries, with a focus on ICTs (Information & Communication Technologies). It was founded in 2012 by a team of passionate social entrepreneurs and is registered in France and the US.

It looks like some pretty large scale projects have received the funding they needed - everything from about $500 (USD) to $30,000 (USD) are having success on the platform! The terms for using it do require a lot of infrastructure from the NGO, but I think it will fit with some of the great organizations led by World Pulse members!

That's awesome:-) Thanks again! There are so many members reaching out to me requesting networking/information/resources for funding, primarily in the African countries, so please keep the resources coming, as you find them, so we can help more sisters, and they can help more sisters, too:-)
