Join Women for Lunch

Women for Women International invites you to host a lunch for your friends to help women in war-torn countries throughout the world to rebuild their lives.

By hosting a lunch, you are making a significant difference to the lives of women survivors of conflict.


The Lunch Appeal

It all starts with you inviting ten friends over for lunch, and asking each of them to donate £10. These friends will then similarly ask ten friends for lunch – or any other kind of get-together, whether it’s dinner, morning coffee, or drinks – and so on. Just as the women we serve set up networks to provide emotional support to each other whilst going through our life changing training programme, you will be starting your own network here in the UK to support them further.

Request a Lunch Pack

To request a Lunch pack, please email Sarah Haynes at stating your name, address, contact number, where you heard about Women for Women International, and the details, date and venue of your lunch.

The Lunch pack will help you host your lunch and to introduce Women for Women International to your friends:

  • DVD with a six minute film introducing Women for Women International, narrated by Meryl Streep.
  • Introductory leaflets to give to each of your friends explaining the work of Women for Women International.
  • Guest list form. Please ask each of your guests to fill out their name and contact details so that we can send them lunch packs for their events.
  • Donation form. When you have collected the £10 lunch donations from your friends we ask that you complete the form and make out a total cheque for £100 or supply your bank details. If you are a UK tax payer we can claim an extra £25 for every £100 raised so please tick the relevant box as this will also help to make a big difference.
