Funds for Good is a Master in Management initiative at INSEAD, brought to life by students with experience in female empowerment and refugee support all over the world. Our education has given us a voice, and we wish to empower many more women by giving them a voice. In the wake of the recent humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, we wish to influence businesses to become a force for good globally.
As part of one of the most impactful business school networks in the world, we aim to unite our student and alumni forces to raise awareness on women’s right to education in Afghanistan. Our initiative collects funds for women foundations and connects our networks with socially responsible corporations.
Despite living in the 21st century, education for girls and women is not a given formany, especially in crisis countries. [give some facts to prove pressing need] Also, the current events in Afganistan remind us of the pressing need to change and support women’s education once again.
