THF supports Women for Women International
We are happy to announce that THF supports Women for Women International - a nonprofit organization that provides practical and moral support to women survivors of war.
Thanks to this donation we support the most marginalized women in countries affected by conflict and war. The programs of WfWI enable them to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, women are able to create sustainable change for themselves, their family, and community..
So far we have raised £2746,61 for this great cause and we have 4 sponsorships: two sisters in Nigeria (Karima Abubakar and Maimuna Suleima) and two sisters in Rwanda (Joselyne Mukakarisa and Veronique Mbanenabo). We would you like to thank all the donors for their kindness and generosity.
We don't stop here! We hope we will raise even more money and help more women to to build their self-confidence, understand their rights, earn an income, and gain the respect of their family and community. If you wish to join us in this effort, please click here .
"One Woman Can Change Anything, Many Women Can Change Everything"
Women for Women International
The Happy Few has sponsored a sister through Women for Women International’s year-long training programme. Our new sister is called Joselyne Mukakarisa and she is from Rwanda! Joselyne is married and the proud mother of four boys and one girl. She is between 41 – 50 years old.
Our sister, Joselyne, has been chosen to join the programme because she faces many forms of hardship in her daily life, which have left her struggling to cope. Getting a place on Women for Women International’s training programme means that Joselyne has experienced things that nobody should ever have to go through – but it also means that she is incredibly resilient, resourceful, and courageous. Thanks to the support of the Happy Few, Joselyne will learn how to earn and save money, improve her family’s health and make her voice heard at home and in her community.Read more »
