WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP
At AMARA we’re passionate about supporting worthy causes that make a difference and this year we’ve partnered up with Women for Women International. This incredible charity helps women survivors of war rebuild their lives and work towards a brighter future for themselves, their family, and their community.
Women for Women International invests where inequality is greatest by helping women who are forgotten — the women survivors of war and conflict.
In Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Sudan, women learn skills to rebuild their families and communities through Women for Women International's Stronger Women, Stronger Nations Programme. They form support networks, learn to earn an income and save money, and gain knowledge and resources about health and their rights. Since 1993, the organization has invested in the power of over 500,000 women, supporting them to use their voices and create a ripple effect that makes the world more equal, peaceful, and prosperous.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Women affected by war and conflict are forced to overcome the most daunting challenges, and the year-long Stronger Women, Stronger Nations programme equips women to earn money, regain confidence and actively participate in their communities. As each woman partakes, she builds skills, knowledge, and resources so she’s able to forge her own path, achieve long-term security, and self-reliance. Here’s a few ways the programme changes the lives of the women who take part…
She’s taught a marketable job skill - this can be anything from tailoring and bread-making to poultry-keeping, and business training so she can turn her chosen skill into a stable income. Learning how to earn and save money provides her with the ability to provide for herself and her family’s needs and invest in their future.
She learns practical knowledge about her own health and wellbeing, including reproductive health, stress management and the importance of good hygiene and nutrition. With basic health education and a connection to local care providers, she’s empowered to protect her own and her family’s wellbeing from preventable diseases.
She’s educated about her rights on key issues such as voting, divorce, custody of her children and domestic abuse. By educating and empowering her about her equal rights, she’ll be able to stand up for herself and have greater confidence to raise her voice on issues affecting her life.
