You can make a big difference to the lives of women whose families, communities and countries have been torn apart by war. To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day on the 8th March, we invite you to accept our fundraising challenge: Raise £100 or $100 to celebrate 100 years and change the lives of women who are facing some of the toughest challenges on earth.

Help us with our appeal and enable 100 more women to be supported by Women for Women and transform their lives from victim to active citizen. Funds raised will provide support to women in war-torn areas through direct financial aid, rights awareness classes, job-skills training and emotional support.

100 brave Afghan women will be standing on a bridge to build a future. Here is how you can help them by raising 100 for 100:

  • 100 could support one women in Afghanistan through 24 sessions on rights awareness and job skills.
  • 500 will support one woman for the whole of her one year training programme.
  • 1000 would enable an agricultural coordinator in Rwanda to participate on a 20 day project management course.
  • 2,500 could support a class of women in Democratic Republic of Congo through a literacy training course.

Please give your support. Every 100 we raise will contribute to enabling women to feed their families, educate their children and support their communities.

Humira, 19 years old, Afghanistan

"I’m very happy. I’ve learnt about myself, my rights and how to run a business. We kept a few chickens before but now we have learnt new techniques. Some of the eggs we get we eat and some we sell to buy things like salt in the bazaar. We are also learning to write, now we can do the numbers from 1-20. We are very thankful for Women for Women International supporters. We hope to have a better life through using our skills, and to send our children to school. We are learning to plan so that we can expand our project and have more goats and chickens. We hope to have peace in our country in order to have a better life."

Showing your support to the women in Afghanistan

When you raise £100, €100 or $100, your name will be added to our online peace banner, a Virtual Wall of individuals like you who want peace and development around the world. See the people who have reached the 100 challenge and visit the Virtual Wall. Your place on the virtual banner is something to be proud of, and you can share it on Facebook to show to your friends and family. Showing your support to the women in Afghanistan

It's amazing to have so many people support the women in Afghanistan. We have created a special banner that is travelling over to Kabul to be presented to 6,000 women survivors of war currently enrolled in our programme in Afghanistan.

Keep on fundraising and share you stories, films and photographs on the interactive event map.

If you raise over 500 a special gift will be sent to you to thank you for your contribution to our appeal. Please remember to give your contact details.

Thank you for your support and donations.
