Women for Women International works with socially excluded women in eight countries where war and conflict have devastated lives and communities. Women who enroll in our one-year program 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. They learn how to become leaders.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

How will this project solve this problem?
Women will learn a vital job skill, enabling them to support themselves and their families.
