Our global community invests in women survivors of war and conflict, providing them with social and economic skills to transform their own lives. Women pass their knowledge to those around them, creating a more just world—a world where every woman’s voice, role, and contribution are visible and valued.
We invest where inequality is the greatest by helping women who are forgotten— the women survivors of war and conflict. We help them learn the skills they need to rebuild their families and communities.
In our Stronger Women, Stronger Nations Program, a woman breaks the isolation of war and conflict by joining a small group of women like her. Together, they learn to save, build businesses, understand their rights, improve their health, and change societal rules. They have the power to transform our world.
For 30 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.
Together with her classmates, a woman who joins the Stronger Women, Stronger Nations Program learns to overcome the social, economic, and cultural barriers that prevent them from reaching their full potential. She connects with women like herself to form a support system, as they gain skills, resources, and knowledge to transform their lives and communities.
Alongside the Stronger Women, Stronger Nations 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.
