The Global Resilience Fund is a partnership between social justice funders committed to resourcing girls' and young women's activism though the COVID-19 crisis.
In May 2020 alike creative. collaborated with the team at Purposeful to create a website that would allow them to accept donations, which went directly to girls and young women living and fighting on the frontlines of the pandemic. Providing emergency response funding to girl-led and centred organisations across every region of the world. By September of 2020 they had supported 120 groups from 67 countries. Illustrations for the website were created by María Ponce.
In May 2021, we were asked to support in the design and launch of Weathering The Storm. An 80 page report that draws on the lessons learned from The Fund. The report brings together diverse voices from across the globe and from funder and activist communities. It was launched as an online document and included external links to the panelists' own experiences of surviving and organising through a global pandemic. A group of young activists who helped decide where the funding went. Illustrations were provided by Shreya Gupta and Judith P Raynault, with art direction and design by alike creative.
