Partners through ScotiaRISE, our Newest Global Community Investment

I Am A Girl has made significant impact in improving the lives of girls. There is alignment between the charity’s objectives and the Bank’s focus on improving economic resilience for disadvantaged groups. At Scotiabank, we believe that with the right support, children can realise their potential and unlock a future of sustained success that benefits them, their family and their entire community, and as such, we are committed to investing in a better future for our young people. 

Sustaining the Lives of Adolescent Girls, Their Growth and Development

Community Windpower Ltd. is at the forefront of wind energy development in the UK, and is wholly committed to fulfilling community obligations. We work closely with communities to provide significant economic, educational, environmental and social benefits.  Our partnership with I Am A Girl is a unique one, because of our love and connection to Barbados. Our partnership supports the food and hygiene bank, along with helping the girls' educational development,  financial literacy and mental wellness.  We contribute where they need it most.

Deepening Our Commitment to Movements Working With And For Girls

Our mission is to create a more just and balanced world, and for us fundamentally that means we must end all forms of violence against girls and women. We support initiatives that promote a holistic, interconnected and healing vision for humanity. Our model is favourable towards uplifting the leadership of organisations, that are usually working within many limitations to support the impact on beneficiaries, and in fostering collaborative relationships like this, we enable the growth and stability to thrive, so that impact is long lasting.

Support Provided to Center Leadership and Strategies for Adolescent Girls

Global Fund for Women is a feminist fund with an intersectional lens for 30+ years, who supports gender justice and grassroots movements towards them creating meaningful change that will last beyond our lifetimes. We offer flexible feminist funding and support to fuel collective action because we envision a world where movements for gender justice have transformed power and privilege for a few into equity and equality for all.

Enhancing the Leadership Ability of Youth for Advancement of the Region

The U.S. Embassy to Bridgetown, the Eastern Caribbean and the OECS often welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on programs that strengthen ties between the U.S. and Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean through cultural, educational, business, and scientific programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. Thus, I Am A Girl's partnership was build on a shared desire to future-proof Caribbean leadership, through a regional youth ambassador programme that fosters capacity building under '50 More'.

Building Resilience Through Key Partners to Adequately Fulfil the SDGs

We are here for every child, but our focus is on the most vulnerable girls and boys who need the extra attention and support.
