Since 1993, we've been helping women survivors of war rebuild their lives and choose their own futures
Zainab Salbi, an Iraqi-American humanitarian, entrepreneur, author and media commentator, founded Women for Women International at the age of just 23. She saw that in modern conflict, it is often more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier.
We have now gone on to serve hundreds of thousands of marginalised and socially excluded women survivors of war. We are proud to provide them with the tools to help them choose their own future and rebuild their lives.
