W2W is based in Geneva, Switzerland and it aims to:
1. Promote and improve women’s access to education.
2. Facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experiences in different domains (topics) among women/women-focused organizations through our online platform (freely accessible) www.
3. Promote women in their professional and personal paths within the spirit of equal opportunities and sustainable development.
The association is inviting women to join the platform as individual users or as representatives of organizations to share their knowledge/experiences and promote/request help for their projects’ development /implementation whose goal is empowering/helping women and/or their communities.
Even though we recognize that governments and institutions have their role in contributing to achieving gender equality, we believe that peer-to-peer interactions and leveraging existing networks of women will equally have a strong impact on empowered women achieving their potential. We believe in the unlimited potential when women collaborate.
We believe in by connecting women, we give them the opportunity to share their precious resources such as time and experience with one another.
We believe in making real needs to be met, by enabling collaborations among women and institutions committed to helping in small or bigger projects.
We believe there is no stronger community than a united and collaborative one!
Helping us to start building up this community of women, by accessing freely to https://www.fromwomantowoman.org/
“From Woman to Woman” is a platform that aims to promote the exchange of technical expertise/ personal experience among women on all institutional and private levels, thereby helping women and women-focused organizations to exchange know-how and experiences in order to be better equipped them to pursue their economic, social development, entrepreneurship and leadership projects.
The W2W online platform is a place where individual women or women affiliated at /working in institutions, with time and experience can offer their help through the platform to women who are looking for training, coaching, and advice in order to better develop their social/entrepreneurial ventures. This exchange between individual women is free of charge and any help offered is like a donation. By registering on the platform, help-givers indicate their areas of expertise and their time availabilities. Help receivers can upload projects and areas of interest in which they need help. The platform connects the help giver and the help receiver, and tracks project progress and time invested.

There is something we women do too often… Do you know what it is? Forgetting and Undervaluing our contribution and the impact we have on others’ lives.
In W2W we want to recognize the givers of time, the helpers of projects and –why not – the financial contributors, so we call them CHAMPIONS and we record their generosity.
All W2W members can become CHAMPIONS when they have contributed ‘something’ to other members of the online W2W platform. That ‘something’ can be the time you offer to help or the money you give.
There are 3 types of CHAMPIONS in the W2W Community: Project Finisher, Time Giver and Financial contributor. At the same time, four categories (reflected in medals/badges) apply to each type of champions: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
There are 4 levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum) per each Champion Type (Time Giver, Project Finisher, Financial Contributor) above, which is shown next to your profile picture/logo ON THE CHAMPIONS page. Below is the detail on how to determine each level:
Project finisher (the level will be reset yearly): The project under responsibility of the user was successfully implemented and benefited:
Bronze medal: Less than 50 beneficiaries
Silver Medal: Between 51 and 70 beneficiaries.
Gold Medal: Between 71 and 100 beneficiaries.
Platinum medal: More than 100 beneficiaries.
