Remaking the world
with and for girls

Purposeful is a feminist movement-building hub for adolescent girls. We amplify girls’ voices, resource their resistance, build solidarity between and across girls’ movements, catalyse collaborative philanthropy and support innovation in grassroots programming with and for girls.  

Our work is both global and deeply local. In Sierra Leone, we bring our work together into one integrated strategy, sparking a groundswell of girls who can access and imagine new possibilities for themselves and their communities. In May we launched the Global Resilience Fund, a collective response to the COVID-19 crisis, to support girl and young women activists at this watershed moment, with fully flexible rapid response grants of up to $5,000. Most recently we have launched the Survivors Solidarity Fund, a mobilisation platform by and for Sierra Leoneans committed to tackling rape culture at its root. Together, we imagine a world of safety, dignity and bodily autonomy for girls and women everywhere. No matter where we are, we work so that girls and their allies can access the resources, networks and platforms they need to remake the world for themselves.
