Founded in 1993, Women for Women International (WfWI) is dedicated to providing women survivors of war with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies. WfWI believes that access to knowledge plus access to resources empowers women to create lasting social and economic change. WfWI currently works in eight countries: Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Sudan. Since its founding, WfWI’s 12-month holistic program of rights awareness and life-skills education and vocational training has transformed the lives of more than 299,000 socially-excluded women and distributed over $94 million in direct aid and microcredit loans.
