Sponsor A woman like Grace

"Women for Women International came and took me out of my loneliness. After I joined, my life got back on track."

When Grace was sponsored through our year-long programme, she was able to rebuild her life and provide for her family.

Change the life of a woman like Grace. Sponsor a sister today.


Our holistic 12 month programme gives a woman survivor of war the tools and networks she needs to rebuild her life.

When her husband died three years ago, Grace and her five children were left with nothing. “I was alone and had to take care of the children who were all very young at the time. I couldn’t imagine them growing without their father around. He was the one who provided for them – school materials, food ...”

The Women for Women International programme proved to be a lifeline for Grace, giving her the skills she needed to provide for her family.

Grace wouldn't have been able to enrol in our year-long programme without the support of her sponsor. And with over forty armed conflicts across the globe and unprecedented levels of violence against women, there's never been a greater need for a sponsor like you. 

As a sponsor, you will be able to write and receive letters from your sister, support her and form a bond that transcends continents. You can offer her hope. You can change the life of a woman who has experienced the worst of humanity.
