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 2017, L.K.Bennett and Women for Women International embarked on a new collaboration.

The result was the Zoja ballet flat, embroidered by ten Kosovo graduates of the Women for Women International programme. 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.
