Women for Women International has an amazing opportunity. We have been selected as one of two non-profit partners to be featured in the Financial Times. If you are an employee there, please vote for Women for Women International to be your charity partner for 2017-18. Together we can shine a light on the women behind the news stories, the millions of women around the world who have been affected by conflict.
Our Impact in 2016
Our vision is to create a world in which all women reach their full potential. Since 1993, we have helped more than 462,000 marginalized women in countries affected by war and conflict.
