Anderson Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization devoted to empowering women and girls. We utilize the power of education as a means of eradicating gender-based inequality and gender gaps. At Anderson Foundation, we believe that we rise by lifting others, and we take pride in partnering with like-minded grassroots organizations who are on the ground, navigating the everyday social and economic obstacles girls face. We are passionate about diversity, equity, and the inclusion of girls and women in a male-dominated world. Women make up 70% of the world's impoverished population and two-thirds of the global illiterate population. We welcome you to join us on our journey - Lifting up girls, lifts the whole world.

When girls get a chance to go to school, learn and explore new opportunities, you can see their confidence grow. You can see the excitement and joy bursting out of them. That’s what inspires us, and we hope it inspires you, too.
The following grassroots organizations are on the ground, making a difference in Haiti, Africa, and around the world. You can learn more about them below.
LIDÈ supports at-risk girls and young women in rural Haiti who have been denied equal access to education. Some girls have dropped out of school due to family and societal pressure; some live in extreme poverty; others have experienced abuse or other traumatizing events. LIDÈ uses literacy and art programs to build the confidence of these girls and young women. It empowers them on their educational journey.
