who we are

The Foundation for Social and Cultural Advancement (SCA) helps girls and women around the world live with dignity and build brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.  We address the needs of the whole woman—not just a limited aspect of her existence—by bringing to light her full potential in the cultivating roles that she undertakes.

Women are the key to successful cultural transformation, so the programs we partner with support this concept, fostering their comprehensive dignity.  

Across the globe, we engage with local institutions that address at the grassroots level the specialized needs of their communities while promoting their holistic enrichment. By giving these women the necessary tools of education and expertise, we are empowering them to reverse their plight—and that of generations to come—because of the multiplying effect that women have in society.

Foundation SCA is a 501 (c) 3 Federal Tax Exempt Non-Profit Public Charity legally incorporated in Washington, D.C.
