About Us

Women Win is a leading global organisation focused on harnessing a rights-based building block approach to gender equity through sport and economic empowerment. With a global team based largely in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Women Win collaborates with diverse partners to increase assets, access, voice, and agency for women and girls around the world.

Founded in 2007 with a mission to advance the playing field that empowers adolescent girls and young women through sport and play, Women Win has reached more than 4 million girls and women in over 100 countries. We work globally to ‘advance the playing field’ that empowers girls through sport and play. Women Win re-grants funds to a large number of local groups and implementing partners; provides technical support to a wide range of programmes globally; promotes sport as a strategy to empower girls and women; and influences other actors to take up this strategy.

In 2018, Women Win merged with Win-Win Strategies (WWS), a non-profit organisation whose mission is to connect the power of business with the deep assets of women’s funds and organisations to empower women globally. Driven by the vision of a future where every woman and girl can exercise her rights and experience full economic empowerment, WWS harnesses a holistic building block approach to women’s and girls’ economic empowerment – one which addresses underlying structural barriers that they face in striving to become full participants in their economies and societies.
