Our Program

 

Every woman has the power to transform her world. When women work together, we have the power to create a better world for all of us.

From war-torn towns to the halls of the United Nations, our global community of women is working to create a more just world—a world where every woman’s voice, role, and contribution are visible and valued. 

Conflict and war deepen the injustices women face. A woman who survives violent conflict lives through brutality, sexual violence, extreme poverty, and the death of loved ones. Her home and community are left fractured in the wake.  

When the conflict ends and the world’s attention moves on, she is left without basic resources, like food, water, and safety in a community that puts her needs and voice last.  

Through the Stronger Women, Stronger Nations Program, we invest in women survivors of war and conflict. Together with her classmates, a woman breaks the isolation of war and conflict, while learning to save, build businesses, understand her rights, improve her health, and change societal rules.  

But women can’t do it alone. Through our complementary programs, we engage with men, community structures, policy makers and graduates of our program to address discriminatory social norms and practices, enhance and create more opportunities for women, and provide the support women need to overcome the obstacles that stand in their way.   

We know women pass on their knowledge to their neighbors and children, creating a ripple effect for generations. By investing in women, we create a better world for all of us—a world that’s more equal, peaceful, and prosperous.  

That’s the power of women, for women.

Through the program, women break their isolation and gain the social and economic skills to transform their own lives. They pass on their power and knowledge to create a more just world, where women can use their power together.

Complementary Programs

We are continuously learning and striving to improve both the program offered to marginalized women, as well as activities that will complement and deepen the impact of our training.

Community Advocacy

The women we serve are community leaders on the front lines. After finishing the Signature Program, women use their power to become Change Agents: Through local advocacy and leadership roles, they rebuild their communities and tackle persistent problems to create sustainable progress.
