Summary

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.
