QUARTERLY UPDATES

As our classrooms progress through the programme, you'll get quarterly digital updates about the skills they're learning and the conflict-affected countries they're from.

SUPPORT CYCLE

Your monthly gift is spread across all of our classrooms, helping women to seize their power in Afghanistan, Iraq, DRC, Nigeria and South Sudan. Your support will continue year on year to ensure that women continue to have the resources they need to realise their potential.

STRONGER WOMEN, STRONGER NATIONS PROGRAMME

WHAT THE WOMEN WILL LEARN DURING THE ONE YEAR

Vocational Skills: Earning an income

Your gift helps women survivors of war learn a vocational skill such as tailoring, brickmaking or agriculture. These skills are highly prized in their local market, so they can earn a stable income and become more independent. This is supplemented with literacy and numeracy training, including bookkeeping and budgeting, which helps them build businesses to support their families.

Rights: Use her voice

Women have fundamental rights that are often overlooked. Even women themselves are often unaware of these rights. Your sisters have a right to vote, to own land, to divorce, and to inherit property. With your contributions, your sisters will learn about gender equality, their rights and the laws that protect them from violence and discrimination.

Health & Wellbeing: Better nutrition means stronger communities

If women aren't physically and mentally healthy, how can they be expected to thrive and contribute to their community? Your sisters will learn about family planning, hygiene, disease prevention, resilience and nutrition to keep themselves and their loved ones healthy.

Support Networks: A community of women learning and growing together

Imagine not feeling safe enough to leave your home. Imagine not having access to friends or community spaces where you could take some comfort in sharing your collective experiences. Sisters are joined together in groups of 25, breaking the isolation caused by war and creating a space of mutual support.

how we choose programme participants

Women chosen for the programme have faced immense hardships. They've lived in extreme poverty without any stable income, are socially isolated, and impacted by conflict in at least one of the following ways: losing a loved one, surviving violence, or forced to flee their homes.

Our team interviews potential participants to understand their background, circumstances, and future plans. To ensure we reach the most marginalised women, we invest where inequality is greatest by intentionally inviting poor and vulnerable women to enrol in the programme

learn more

When war and insecurity take hold, women bear the heaviest burden of violence, poverty and inequality. Learn more about why supporting women survivors of war is so important.
