Women start companies 2.5x the national average but revenues account for less than 5%.* It’s clear that women entrepreneurs have the drive and talent, but need more resources to help them take their businesses to the next level.

Where is my money going?

0% of this money is profit. 100% of it goes to supporting girls’ education in developing countries.

50% of the program cost will go into the HER Scholarship fund. We set up this scholarship to sponsor young women who have the potential to become future leaders in developing countries through university.

50% of the program cost will go to sponsoring our annual HER Global Zine Project trip. Every year, the UME team partners with a girls’ education NGO in a developing country to design and facilitate a week-long leadership program for girls. In 2016, we went to Malawi and in 2017, we went to Phnom Penh. Learn more about the HER Zine Project here.

We will provide a breakdown of where and who your money is going towards, and provide relevant updates.
