South African Medical Research Council | Intervention – Women for Women International

Women for Women International offers marginalised women survivors of conflict a tried and tested year-long, combined social and economic empowerment programme that includes:

  1. Informational training in critical modules that include the value of women’s work, benefits of saving, basic health education, rights and decision making, and group formation; 
  2. Skill-building in numeracy, business skills and a chosen vocational skill;
  3. Resource provision in the form of a monthly cash stipend, asset transfers for vocational activities, savings channel provision, and referrals to health and legal services; and
  4. Connections to local women’s networks and global supporters as well as connections to other women, by creating a safe and comfortable space where women, in groups of 25, learn, share and support one another to initiate change in their lives.
