When women have the power to change the course of their own lives, they can change the course of their communities – for the better.
Women are at the center of our approach. We look at the whole woman and her needs to bring her the support and resources that will help her find her own power – and unleash it. For over 25 years, Women for Women International has used an integrated approach to go beyond charity to innovation: We are a learning organization that listens to data, our teams on-the-ground, and women themselves to constantly evolve and improve the way we work.
We proudly provide a broad array of vital support and education for women in 8 countries around the world that have felt the devastating effects of conflict.
Through an integrated approach, Women for Women International brings women together to overcome the social, economic, and cultural barriers that keep them from reaching their full potential. In groups of 25, women learn to build support networks with each other, share experiences, learn critical social and economic skills, and access resources.
Alongside the Signature Program, we offer complementary programs to help women by supporting their growth and addressing social norms, practices, and policies that hold them back.
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. Explore our supporting program components below.
We engage men to become allies and advocates for women’s empowerment and gender equality.
After our year-long program, graduates continue their journey to empowerment through advanced trainings.
The women we serve are community leaders on the front lines. As Change Agents, they tackle persistent problems and rebuild communities from the ground up.
