Great News! But What Can You Do Now?

What You DID.

You helped fund this project! We raised almost $8,000 to promote and distribute female condoms in Cameroon – twice as much as our initial goal. IWHC and our partner SWAAC thank you!

In March, our Program and Communications team visited SWAAC and documented their inspiring work. Check out the photos below to see how your gift is making a difference for women throughout Cameroon. 

What You Can DO Now.

Did you know that in the next decade over 100 million girls will be married under the age of 18, often against their will? YOU can help end early and forced marriage this Mother’s Day, a practice that is harmful to a girl's health and well-being.

Show the amazing women in your life how much you care by making a gift in their honor to support APAD, an organization that empowers survivors of early and forced marriage in the Extreme North region of Cameroon, and educates communities about the intrinsic human rights of girls. Your loved one will receive a personalized card in electronic or paper form.

Thank you for partnering with us to ensure a healthy and just life for women and girls worldwide.
