What does Women for Women International do?

Since 1993, Women for Women International has invested in the power of over 500,000 women who are forgotten — the women survivors of war and conflict — to learn the skills they need to rebuild their families and communities. In Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Sudan, we provide a year-long vocational program in which women build vocational skills, learn about their rights, and form bonds of support with their classmates — putting them on a path to success. Our complimenary programs include men's engagement, community advocacy, and active conflict response. You can learn more about our work at womenforwomen.org
