As a magazine editor traveling the globe in search of “girls who were doing amazing things,” Tara Roberts realized that young women working to make a difference in one country were unaware of the efforts of others elsewhere. That’s why Roberts teamed up with Sejal Hathi, founder of the nonprofit Girls Helping Girls, to launch girltank, a community hub for women changemakers around the world. Through an online and offline virtual community, girltank seeks to help female social entrepreneurs acquire resources and scale their work.
Through the Mothers of Invention program, Toyota supports Robert’s innovative and creative approach to tackle this issue. The Toyota Mothers of Invention program provides grants to remarkable women actively contributing to their communities and to the world through innovation, entrepreneurship, and invention. Toyota's support enables these organizations to multiply their impact and expand their reach.
