Working with the UK government to empower the most marginalised women
Women for Women International is working with the UK government's Department for International Development, now known as the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) since 2 September 2020, to implement transformative projects in Democratic Republic of Congo and Nigeria, reaching thousands of marginalised women and male allies with our holistic training programmes.
Through the generous support of UK aid from the British people, we are working with 3,600 marginalised women in Bauchi State, Nigeria, providing them with training to sustain livelihoods and to understand their rights, value and potential as well as contribute to the development of their communities.
Since 2017, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) - now known as the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) - and the Jo Cox Foundation have worked closely together to develop Jo Cox Memorial Grants. Thanks to their generous support, Women for Women International is supporting 1,200 women survivors of war in Democratic Republic of Congo through our results-based social and economic empowerment programme, and building an advocacy alliance with local Civil Society Organisations.
