"Each woman impacted by a VGIF-funded project is a step towards empowering women worldwide," says volunteer and board member, Meg Chappell. VGIF has relied on volunteer support since our start in 1969 and, like Meg, you can get involved, too.

The Association for Community Empowerment Cameroon (ACECAM) is a NGO dedicated to improving the rights of women, girls, families and domestic workers. Through their 2014-2015 VGIF funded project, a pilot effort to reach domestic workers, ACECAM is providing 11-month long trainings on computer and secretarial skills to enhance participants' employability as well as facilitated a successful three day workshop to educate women and girls on their legal rights around wages, pensions, and safe working conditions.
We welcomed Muadi Mukenge of The Global Fund for Women to the office today where she met with VGIF staff to discuss our monitoring and evaluations of past and present grantees.
