Double Your Gift: Help Inform Women and Transform Lives

Due to the generosity of donors like you, this special match has been met. Thank you!

Information has the power to transform lives. The fundamental right of access to information is a critical element of democratic governments, key for the people they serve and particularly crucial for women. It provides for a more meaningful voice, enabling women to participate in public life, access public services, and make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities.

An anonymous Carter Center donor has matched all gifts to this special campaign, up to $100,000.

For many women, the power of information remains unreachable.

Women are less likely to demand and receive access to information, even while having to earn an income or care for their family.

Women are also more likely to be poor, illiterate, and harmed by corruption. In male-dominated societies, they sometimes can be in danger of retribution if they ask for information.

Progress in Transforming Lives

The Carter Center’s groundbreaking Inform Women Transform Lives campaign launched in 2021 in 12 cities across the globe: Amman, Jordan; Atlanta, USA; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Cape Town, South Africa; Chicago, USA; Colombo, Sri Lanka; Dublin, Ireland; Guatemala City, Guatemala; Kampala, Uganda; Lima, Peru; Monrovia, Liberia; and São Paulo, Brazil.

In 2022, 12 more cities were added: Birmingham, United Kingdom; Bogota, Colombia; Casablanca, Morocco; Dhaka North, Bangladesh; Freetown, Sierra Leone; Maputo, Mozambique; Montevideo, Uruguay; Nairobi, Kenya; Paris, France; Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Tunis, Tunisia; and Washington, D.C., USA.

Thank you for helping women transform their lives through access to information.
