The Edith Ballantyne Fund
The Edith Ballantyne Fund has long been one of the dreams of Edith Ballantyne, former Secretary General and President of WILPF – a woman who has dedicated her life to ensuring that the root causes of conflict are explored and that women’s voices are heard in the fight against conflict.
The Fund has been established to strengthen the ability of young women to take on internships at WILPF’s offices in either Geneva or New York, to engage in the international programmes.
