Support SheDecides

With Global SheDecides Day 2019 just around the corner, this is a great time to fire up the excitement for a world where SheDecides. One of the many ways you can take action and support the movement is to Unlock Resources so the services and programmes are there when girls and women decide to use them.

The future of millions of girls and women is at risk.

Girls and women worldwide have a fundamental human right to decide about their bodies. That means women can decide freely and for themselves whether, when and how many children they have. SheDecides is a global political movement driving change, fuelled by actions in communities and with young people at its heart. One of the three goals of the movement is to Unlock Resources, making sure that women and girls will have continued access to essential health care and family planning services. In 2017, the United States President issued an executive order banning US foreign aid for non-US NGOs that provide access to, and information about, safe abortion – even if organisations do this using their own, non-US funds.

Many groups need your support, today.

Many people and organisations worldwide are already supporting SheDecides in lots of different ways. And many organisations need your help, too. Girls and women will not stop having abortions when they need them. When they can’t have access to safe abortion care, they will revert to unsafe abortions, which can cause irreparable damage and death. This is your opportunity to take a stand and donate right now!

Rutgers is an organization, based in the Netherlands, that supports and raises money for SheDecides. The money goes to:

  • Keep health clinics open in communities

  • Provide a full range of sexual and reproductive health services to people who need it

  • Advocate for law reforms to stop unsafe abortions

All funds will be distributed to organisations affected by the Global Gag Rule. To qualify for funding, they need to meet these criteria:

  1. The organisation is affected by the Global Gag Rule

  2. In addition to safe abortion services, the organisation will also provide access to contraceptives.

  3. The size of received donations raised by Rutgers to support a world where SheDecides, will not exceed the amount of funding withheld from the organisation by the Global Gag Rule

  4. The prospects of the organisation, after receiving funding from Rutgers – for a world where SheDecides - will be progressive and prosperous.

These private fundraising accounts are managed by Rutgers, an internationally operating NGO on sexual and reproductive health and rights, based in the Netherlands. Rutgers has the ANBI status issued by the Internal Revenue Service and holds certificates by the Central Bureau of Fundraising (CBF) and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). All funds will fully and directly be channeled to the affected organisations. These organisations will deliver certified audit reports to account for their expenses. The reports will be published on this website annually.
