Darfur Women Network, DWN

Our mission is to raise public awareness, provide educational outlets, use specialized programming, assist and encourage refugee women, girls and families displaced by the Darfur conflict so they may re-establish personal empowerment and flourishing communities in the face of adversity. Darfur Women Network, Inc. works with both refugees in Chad and those who have immigrated to the United States. We work to empower Darfuri women so that they can help their families, and therefore their communities.
Food Security and Agriculture

Raised
Remaining
Darfur refugees were farmers before they fled Sudan in 2003. They are dependent on the World Food Program for food, but rations are low so the provisions do not cover their need. Refugees requested urgent assistance from the DWN in establishing small-scale farming and home gardening projects to produce their own food. The project will provide 1000 refugee families with rented land, seed and equipment they need to produce flourishing communities, agricultural security and personal empowerment. project reportread updates from the field

Raised
Remaining
Fitness and nutrition is very important for all ages in African immigrant communities; particularly for women and girls. However, lack of education regarding nutrition and healthy cooking, better eating habits and a more active lifestyle leads to unhealthy lifestyles in immigrants. Fitness has not been traditionally recognized as it has not been a part of their regular routine, education or background in Africa. project reportread updates from the field
