Who Makes It All Happen

Women for Women International could not provide direct financial and emotional support to women living on the margins of hope without the backing of a global community. Our dedicated staff, volunteers, generous donors, supporters and friends are the ones who make it happen.

Since its creation, Women for Women International has given hope to more than 351,000 women survivors of war and conflict. We have helped them move toward economic self-sufficiency with our year-long program of direct aid, rights education, job skills training, and small business development. We have distributed $108 million in direct aid, microcredit loans, and other program services. Since 1993, Women for Women International has mobilized more than 300,000 women and men in 185 countries worldwide to reach out and support women survivors of war – one woman at a time.

Our supporters contribute resources, time, and energy to help to make the future brighter for thousands of women survivors of war. With your ongoing support, Women for Women International will continue to address women’s immediate and long-term needs, work to improve their status and opportunities and see what can be done to create a more just and peaceful world.
