Giving Tuesday 2018

Join in on the world’s biggest day of giving and make a real difference for women survivors of war

What could be better than the world’s biggest day of giving? In 2015 and 2016, #GivingTuesday broke the Guinness World Record for the most amount of money donated to charity online in 24 hours, with more than 4.5 million people participating on the day!

This year, on Tuesday 27th November, we want to raise £25,000 – enough to fund 46 women to take part in our year-long training programme.

Check out all the ways you can support women survivors of war on #GivingTuesday.

Double your donation – at no cost to you

For one week only, a generous group of donors have offered to match all donations made to Women for Women International. This means you can double the impact of your donation, at no extra cost to you – and help us reach more women affected by poverty and violence.

Your donation will help us to enrol more women in our year-long training programmes, where they will get the skills, resources and support they need to rebuild their lives.
