Wherever inequality lives, there stands a girl or woman able to turn the tide of adversity into a tidal wave of progress. We simply have to commit to her.
Deliver for Good is a global campaign that applies a gender lens to the SDGs and promotes critical investments in girls and women to power progress for all.
Girls and women carry more than babies. Or water. They carry families. They carry businesses. They carry potential. And when we invest in their health, rights, and wellbeing, it creates a positive ripple effect that lifts up entire countries.
Give girls and women access to healthcare, they will deliver more resilient families. Give girls and women the potential to learn, they will deliver stronger economies. Give girls and women opportunities, they will deliver solutions.
Deliver for them. Deliver for all. Deliver for good.
Advocacy in Action
The Deliver for Good Campaign advocates for concrete actions to advance gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women at global and national levels.
At the global level, our advocacy efforts unite partners working across multiple sectors, issue areas, and generations with shared messages and policy asks to drive policy priorities.
At the country level, the Deliver for Good Campaign has started dedicated advocacy and communications efforts in Kenya and Senegal. In each of these countries, local partners are leading cross-sector coalitions to develop and execute country-specific advocacy strategies that fuel change within the local context and policy environment.

How does the Deliver for Good Campaign increase investments for girls and women?
- Changing the Narrative Deliver for Good is reshaping the global narrative around girls and women—from victims and the vulnerable, to agents of change and critical drivers of progress. The Deliver for Good campaign partners curate and disseminate a stronger, more comprehensive evidence base highlighting the roles that girls and women play in development. The partners are sharing the evidence through advocacy and communications to shape a new narrative to clearly communicate why investing in girls and women positively impacts communities, development, and the achievement of the SDGs.
- Mobilizing Cross-Sector, Cross-Issue, and Cross-Generational Engagement The Deliver for Good campaign partners are breaking down traditional development silos and formalizing the engagement of stakeholders working across multiple sectors, issue areas, and generations.
- Inspiring Action The Deliver for Good campaign partners, allies, supporters, and country coalitions advocate for the implementation of policies, programs, and investments that reflect the important role girls and women play in global development and in the achievement of the SDGs. This includes developing and executing strategies that work to ensure policies related to SDG implementation include a gender lens and are coordinated across issue areas.
