Women for Women International

  • Women for Women International works with socially excluded women in eight countries where war and conflict have devastated lives and communities. Each woman we serve has her own story–some of loved ones murdered, and others of physical and emotional trauma. Most have endured a struggle for survival.
  • When we enroll women in our one-year program, they learn job skills and receive business training so they can earn a living. They come to understand their rights and how to fight for those rights in their homes, their communities and their nations and become leaders.
  • Women for Women International (WfWI) believes that lasting change can only be achieved when women have access to both knowledge and resources. (What we do).

About/Who makes it all happen: Women for Women International could not provide direct financial and emotional support to women living on the margins of hope without the backing of a global community of dedicated staff, volunteers, generous donors, supporters and friends. 

Since its creation, Women for Women International has given hope to more than 299,000 women survivors of war and conflict and helped them move toward economic self-sufficiency with our year-long program of direct aid, rights education, job skills training, and small business development. We have distributed $95 million in direct aid, microcredit loans, and other program services. Since 1993, Women for Women International has mobilized more than 250,000 women and men in 130 countries worldwide to reach out and support women survivors of war – one woman at a time.

Our supporters contribute resources, time, and energy to help to make the future brighter for thousands of women survivors of war. With your ongoing support, Women for Women International will continue to address women’s immediate and long-term needs, work to improve their status and opportunities and see what can be done to create a more just and peaceful world … (full text about /Who makes it all happen).
