The Womanity Foundation was established in 2005 by Yann Borgstedt, a successful businessman and entrepreneur who believes the best way to build sustainable growth lies in collaboration between the social sector and the business world.
Originally called the Smiling Children Foundation, we began work in Morocco helping girls (some as young as 6) working as domestic laborers to return to their families and attend school. The Foundation also supported rural communities there to professionalize their olive oil production and increase their exports.
In 2012 the new name was officially adopted with The Womanity Foundation expressing a determination towards the empowerment of women for the greater good of all humanity.
