Global Partner Series

We’re proud to partner with organizations around the world whose work helps stabilize global population. Since 2016, we’ve made grants or donations to small-to-medium sized organizations working on the ground in their communities to remove barriers to girls’ education, increase access to public health and family planning services, and conserve wildlife. We were able to expand this program substantially in 2022 and are excited to share the work of these incredible organizations with you!

Join us throughout the year for presentations from our Global Partners, each working in their own community to provide programs and services that contribute to stabilizing global population. See below for a line-up of upcoming presentations, Q+A interviews with our partners, and more!

Upcoming Presentations

Marking International Women’s Day

Presentation with Melvine Ouyo, Founder, Hope for Kenya Slum Adolescents Initiative

We’re marking International Women’s Day with Melvine Ouyo, Founder of Hope for Kenya Slum Adolescent Initiative (HKSAI). During the event, we’ll learn about HKSAI’s mission to promote access to education and enhance the social and economic empowerment of vulnerable girls and women in Kenya’s informal settings.

Through our partnership, we help support HKSAI’s Hope through Education Empowerment Program, a transformative initiative aimed at elevating enrollment, retention, and graduation rates in higher education institutions for women residing in the slums of Kenya. The program specifically targets young mothers and adolescent girls, ensuring they do not miss out on the opportunity for a high school or tertiary education.

Date: Wednesday, March 6th
Time: 2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT
