Provide 2000 Sudanese Women with Rights Education



Women for Women International is providing a powerful opportunity for peace, stability and growth to women who have only known violence. Our program provides rights awareness and literacy training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

When the world hears about Sudan, it is most often about the violence in Darfur.But the problems in Sudan are much more widespread. Most of Sudan’s nearly 40 million people have never known a time when their country was at peace. Women suffered horrible abuses during the decades-long wars, having been targeted for violence by armies on all sides. Two million women have been raped, four million uprooted and hundreds of thousands live in refugee camps.

How will this project solve this problem?

2000 women will receive rights-awareness education and literacy training. Once they're able read, write, and do simple addition, they can take the next step to opening their own business, join a woman’s cooperative and pass her literacy skills on.

Potential Long Term Impact

Helping women move from victim to survivor to active citizen benefits families, communities and nations. Program graduates have become businesswomen, farmers and community leaders; supporting our conviction that stronger women build stronger nations.
