Why Is This Scholarship Program Only Available For Women?

Empowering women is smart economics. Did you know that globally, countries lose $60 trillion in wealth due to wage gaps between women and men? Closing gender gaps benefits countries as a whole, not just women and girls.

Women are significantly underrepresented in leadership positions in the conservation sector and therefore have less opportunity to influence important decisions around how we take action.

From early on in their lives, Indonesian women have an important role in their families and community. This means they have less time for formal education and less time to play and be inspired by nature. In general, boys are enabled to reach for their dreams, and girls are broadly only encouraged to support their more powerful men. That is unless they are provided with nurturing and supportive opportunities to do otherwise!

We believe that empowering women and promoting gender equality are crucial to accelerating sustainable development. We don’t want to exclude men but we want to create more opportunities for women.
