Women for Women International

Women for Women International supports women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places. Women enrol on the charity’s year-long training programme, where they learn how to earn and save money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard at home and in their community.

Since 1993, the charity has helped almost half a million marginalised women survivors of war in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan.

"Before, we only knew each other as neighbours. Now, we are friends and we plan together to lift ourselves out of poverty,” shares Donata. With the right support, women seize the opportunity to build a bright future for themselves and those around them.
