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.
