Giving Women is an amazing organization of incredibly diverse and talented women committed to donating their efforts to help Women and Girls around the World and in Geneva.

The opportunity to meet other interesting women and learn and grow in a philanthropical and social evolution context is deep and broad and very inspiring.

I have been a member of GW since its start & continue to be grateful for the opportunities ” to give” in my own special way and to receive in so many more ways…

Thank you GW for the incredible network you have built & the wealth of experiences you continue to provide for your members & for recipients of your guidance — WholeHearted Kudos!

I have been an active member of Giving Women over the last 5 years. Joining the group has given me a concrete opportunity to help people in need by leveraging my 25+ years of working experience in the financial industry.

What do I get from my involvement on project circles ?

  • An opportunity to live the values driving Giving Women, i.e. giving back, caring, sharing and working together to help the projects we support to make a bigger impact!
    Each project circle is an incredibly dynamic, professional and inspiring group made of women coming from many different backgrounds and cultures, but all genuinely keen to contribute, to openly share, to deliver together high quality results.
  • A dynamic, professional and evolving platform
    The Giving Women association constantly provides/develops tools to support the members involved on projects circles to be better equipped in serving the projects and NGOs.
  • Last but not least, a source of inner wealth !
    Working with individuals in the projects and NGOs who devote themselves passionately to humanitarian causes to help change the world is an incredible lesson that fills me with humility and admiration and I am very proud to add my limited contribution to it !
