Raspberry seedlings are spreading hope in #Kosovo! Read about it on our blog. “A woman can be strong without anyone’s help, but she can also breakdown if she expects everyone to value her. To see herself for who she is and accept it is a strength that a woman can have only by believing in herself.”

If you work for the @financialtimes join us in supporting gender equality through the engagement of the entire community to better the position of marginalised and socially excluded women. Yaungson, pictured here at men’s engagement training, is married with six children. He says his participation in the men’s workshops has helped him understand how to have an open dialogue in his marriage and mutual respect for his wife. One of Women for Women International’s main goals is to engage men as allies for equality across the globe. We run a men’s engagement programme, which enables communities and their male leaders to come together to talk openly about discrimination and oppression. Since we began in 2002, more than 15,000 men have learnt how to best support their wives and daughters through the discussion of women’s rights, gender equality and the study of religious scripture in regards to the role of women in society. Vote for us this as your Seasonal Appeal Charity! Thank you so much for your support <3 #strongwomen #strongnations #SheInspiresMe #keepmovingforward #tuesdaymotivation

Today is #PTSDAwarnessDay. At Women for Women International, we know the struggles women endure as survivors of war and conflict. Many of the women we serve are in need of emotional support and therapy sessions to overcome the trauma they have faced. Pictured here is a participant at the Khanke Refugee camp who is practicing relaxation techniques she learned in our program. #SheInspiresMe #StrongWomen #strongnations #SheBringsPeace

This #ThrowbackThursday we are inspired by Angelica Schuyler Church. You may recognize Angelica from the hit Broadway musical @hamiltonmusical where she is portrayed as a fiery and witty feminist. Angelica lived through American independence and was the sister-in-law of founding father, Alexander Hamilton. Although she moved to London in 1785 she was a big player in American politics, mingling and conversing with the likes of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Far from being cut out from politics because of her gender, Angelica made a point to always be a part of the political conversation and was renowned for her wit, charm and intelligence. She read widely and always expressed a desire to learn, defying what was expected of her at the time. We are inspired by her unapologetic thirst for learning and her defiance of social norms. Here at Women for Women International we are proud to champion the same causes as Angelica, aspiring to give women worldwide the access to knowledge and empowerment they are entitled to. Join us in sponsoring a sister. #TBT #SheInspiresMe #strongwomen #strongnations

Yesterday Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton sat down with CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour to discuss the importance of women involvement in peace and security. What much of the news media missed was the emphasis that she put on investing in women’s rights in the United States and around the world.

This month is very important for me! On 15th August (1947), India got its independence from British rule and on 9th August (1965), Singapore got its Independence from Malaysia. While Singapore helped me shape my personality, Punjabi culture and Indian values kept me strong and focused on my dream of becoming an actress. To the dream of billions, Happy Independence day!

#FeministFriday! Did you know we teach numeracy to women in our program so they can successfully earn an income on their own? Up to 92% of program participants in #Afghanistan don't have basic numeracy skills before entering our program. Below is a picture of a class taking place where women participate in group discussions on counting. #FridayFeeling #StrongWomen #StrongNations#SheInspiresMe

#tbt to Miriam Makeba, a world-known South African singer and political activist. Known as “Mama Africa,” she has exposed Western audiences to African music and championed the struggle against apartheid. Witnessing racist policies such as separate black and white audiences, Makeba vowed to sing about the poverty and injustice in South Africa. Makeba was exiled to the United States by the apartheid government and during this time she also battled cervical cancer, successfully recovering from surgery. While facing her own pain, she continued to draw attention to the suffering of her people, speaking about the horrors of apartheid before the UN General Assembly in 1964 and 1975 and winning the Dag Hammerskjold Peace Prize in 1986. The apartheid government responded by banning her recordings until 1988. After thirty years of exile, Makeba returned to South Africa in 1991, following Nelson Mandela’s release from prison. Her first South African concert was a huge success, helping her launch a world tour and two successful albums. Since her return from exile, Makeba has also helped craft the newly free South Africa: she has served as Goodwill Ambassador to the UN, founded the Makeba Rehabilitation Centre for Girls, and supported the struggle against HIV and AIDS.
