We believe women have the power to transform their lives, but when women are undervalued and oppressed, their power is undermined. Conflict and war deepen this injustice. At Women for Women International (WfWI), we invest in women who are forgotten—those facing the greatest inequalities in areas of conflict— and support them in learning the social and economic skills they need to rebuild their lives, their families, and their communities.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related economic crisis, 2021 has been another challenging year. Added to that is the distressing fact that more countries have experienced some form of violent conflict than at any time in the last 30 years.
But thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we have invested in over 530,000 women over the last 29 years, working to realize our vision of a world in which all women determine the course of their lives and reach their full potential.
