A special message from Rukema Ezekiel, Head of the Economic Empowerment Programme at Women for Women International - Rwanda about the impact of your support.

How your support will make a difference

By 2030, fragile and conflict-affected countries will be home to 46% of the world’s extreme poor – and women and female-headed households are most likely to be at the bottom of the economic pyramid. 

You can help women reclaim their economic power by: 

  • Providing access to finances through participation in Village Savings and Loan Association Groups (VSLAs) 
  • Improving their literacy and numeracy skills 
  • Providing access to business and vocational training 
  • Building solidarity among women to work collectively in their communities and share resources

Your gift could help to pay for:

Sewing machine

A gift of £27.50 doubled to £55

In Afghanistan, Iraq and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the path to economic self-sufficiency often begins with a small home tailoring business. As tailors and seamstresses, women are using simple sewing tools like this to provide an income for themselves and their families.

Business skills training

A gift of £12.50 doubled to £25

Your gift could pay for hands-on training in the basics of business—like how to market products, knowing what customers want, and providing consistently high-quality goods. Women also participate in literacy training, gain access to Village Savings and Loans Association Groups, and build solidarity among the women we serve so they can form strong business networks. This allows women to become economic providers for their families and contributors to their community's economic development too.
