Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

University students supported by Amity's University for Girls Project are celebrating their admission to university

Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is crucial to accelerating sustainable development. Gender inequality still persists worldwide in form of violence, exploitation and unequal division of resources and labor. Achieving gender equality and empower women and girls will require more vigorous efforts including legal frameworks to counter deeply rooted gender-based discrimination. Women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world. Gender equality is not only a basic right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Empowering women and girls has a multiplier effect, and helps drive up economic growth and development. The Amity Foundation is supporting women and girls with improving equal access to education, health care, work, resources and representation. The Amity Foundation provides scholarships, supports woman and women's associations with training and finance, and advocates against discrimination and for equal rights worldwide.
