When there is an outbreak of war or violence, women suffer most – they experience trauma, sexual violence and the death of loved ones. After the conflict is over, the world’s attention moves on, but women are left to rebuild their families and communities.

Women for Women International supports women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places. Women enrol on the charity’s year-long training programme, where they learn how to earn and save money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard at home and in their community.

With over forty brutal armed conflicts across the globe, there’s never been a greater need to support women survivors of war. With your help, women can graduate from the Women for Women International programme with the skills, knowledge and resources to become successful entrepreneurs. They will pass on their knowledge to their neighbours and children, creating a ripple effect.

More about Women for Women International


Since 1993, Women for Women International has helped half a million marginalised women survivors of war in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan.

With your support, women can inspire hope for the future of their family and community.

Join the sisterhood by sponsoring a woman through our one-year programme for £22 per month and help change the world one woman at a time. You can also sign up to our mailing list, and lend your voice to create a chain of inspiration. Together we will use the power of our collective voice to support women in war-torn countries, the most vulnerable women in the world.
