VGIF welcomes board, committee, and general members to New York City for our Board and Annual Meeting. This afternoon, we heard remarks from Bridget K. Burns, Advocacy and Communications Director of Women's Environment and Development Organization (WEDO), and recognized VGIF's major donors for their generosity in 2014.
Happy #EarthDay! To celebrate the international day, VGIF is happy to share the April Flash which discusses enhancements made to clean water access through Women in Water and Natural Resources Conservation of Kenya's 2014 grant.

"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.
