Since 1993, Women for Women International has helped nearly 429,000 marginalized women in countries affected by war and conflict.
We directly work with women in 8 countries offering support, tools, and access to life-changing skills to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency.
We bring women together in a safe space to learn life, business, and vocational skills. Once enrolled, each receives a monthly stipend – a vital support that enables her to participate.
Women increase their ability to earn an income with new skills that are in-demand. They learn about their legal rights, and they become knowledgeable about health and nutrition. The result: stronger women, stronger families, and stronger communities. This ripple effect is profound.
The St Andrews branch of W4W sponsors several women through this year long program by heavily fundraising for this amazing organization. From art exhibitions to sports matches to activist demonstrations, we put on many events throughout the year and are always looking for new members and support. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Latest news- We raised enough money in the 2015/2016 academic year to sponsor three more women through the W4W program. We hope to sponsor many more in the coming year.
