"These investments are representative of the approach that Archewell Foundation, as well as The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have taken towards advancing racial and gender justice," the message continued. "Throughout her life, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex has worked to promote stronger communities and more equitable outcomes for families. She has met with leaders across the public and private sector to champion women’s economic independence and access to paid leave and has sought to bring a comprehensive approach to women’s empowerment. Further, in her experience as a humanitarian ambassador, which took her to countries like Rwanda and India, she tackled issues ranging from clean water and food insecurity to girls’ education and period poverty."

Ultimately, the pair's message is simple. "Part of Archewell Foundation’s core commitment is to build strong, compassionate, and equitable communities across the world. Although these grants have been announced as we recognize Women’s History Month, the work they represent is relevant and vital every day of the year," they concluded.
