Our corporate partners

Corporate partners support our work by sponsoring individuals or classrooms of women to participate in our programme, raising funds with their employees and customers or donating a percentage of sales from a product.

L.K.Bennett

In 2014, we marked the beginning of Women for Women International’s partnership with L.K Bennett and their commitment to helping women survivors of war rebuild their lives. Since then, the incredible partnership has raised over £100,000.

L.K Bennett have incorporated supporting the women we serve in every aspect of their business. From 10% of sale proceeds on special days such as Giving Tuesday and International Women’s Day, to continued social media support and most notably, a special product collaboration in 2017. 

Their sponsorship of the first ever #SheInspiresMe Lunch and involvement in the #SheInspiresMe Car Boot Sales have been instrumental in helping to achieve our mission of changing the world, one woman a time.

In 2017, L.K Bennett and Women for Women International embarked on an exciting collaboration. The result was the Zoja ballet flat, embroidered by ten graduates of the Women for Women International programme in Kosovo. 100% of the sale proceeds benefit our work supporting women survivors of war.

#HeartAndSole

 

Inspired by traditional needlework techniques that commonly decorate Kosovar folk dress, the Zoja ballerina flats are decorated with hand-embroidered hearts. The heart is a universally peaceful symbol, so it was the natural design choice.

A collaboration that would touch the actual women that are participating in the Women for Women International programme – and that would go all the way to the customer.
