About Women for Women International

Women for Women International supports the most marginalized women in countries affected by conflict and war. The organization’s programs enable women to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, women are able to create sustainable change for themselves, their family, and community. Along with helping more than 478.000 women in the past 20 years to rebuild their own lives and those of their families and communities after war, Women for Women International uses its voice to call global attention to the unique role that women play in advancing peace throughout society.
