The Fempower Initiative is a Brussels-based non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of girls and young women living in disadvantaged areas in the Middle East. We work with a number of local organisations to provide the best care and opportunities to those most in need.
Fempower Initiative is part of the King Baudouin Foundation, a public benefit foundation set up in 1976 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the reign of King Baudouin.
The Foundation’s current areas of activity are poverty and social justice, philanthropy, health, civic engagement, developing talents, democracy, European integration, heritage and development cooperation.
As a Fund within the Foundation, all donations and funding are monitored and regulated. This also means that Fempower Initiative is able to provide tax-exemption receipts for donors from Belgium, the US and most European countries.
My mother was born and brought up in Cairo, where most of my family still live. I have seen first-hand the struggles and hardships young women in the region face, and, aware of how fortunate I have been, decided to devote myself to combatting these challenges and creating opportunities for female empowerment.
If we believe we can, we will.
The Fempower Initiative is a project close to my heart
