The MIM initiative at INSEAD aims to raise awareness of women’s right to education in Afghanistan. Through webinars, online fundraising and a charity gala, Funds for Good strives to educate future leaders and businesses and collect funds for selected women’s organisations supporting Afghan women and girls.
Funds for Good is a Master in Management initiative at INSEAD, brought to life by students that have previously been involved in refugee support and female leadership empowerment all over the world. We are given a voice because of the education we have received, and we wish to empower many more women by giving them a voice.
In the wake of the recent humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, where the Taliban is upending the progress made in gender equality over the last 20 years, Funds for Good aims to support Afghan women and girls and their right to education. In order to have a tangible impact, Funds for Good is collecting donations for Women for Women International and Save the Children, who support women of all ages, both in Afghanistan as well as outside of the country, to helping female refugees who had to flee the country.
The Charity Gala
The Fundraising Gala is one of the key pillars of Funds for Good. We will establish the event as an annual initiative for the entire INSEAD community as well as for our private networks. The gala will be held at a historical landmark in Fontainebleau, with approximately 300 guests: During the event, an online and offline auction will be hosted, with 100% of the proceeds going towards the chosen organisations in support of Afghan women refugees.
