Women for Women International was founded in 1993 to help women survivors of war rebuild their lives, their families and communities. The UK office was established in 2006 and has grown a strong and effective supporter base. Our income in 2014 was £3.3 million.

Based in central London, Women for Women International UK is a small but highly dedicated team working together with Women for Women International Headquarters in Washington DC and offices in the eight countries where we work. Our mission is to serve the most marginalised women in countries affected by conflict to help them attain a sustainable level of human dignity.
