In 25 years we have reached 18 million women and girls, their families and communities across more than 70 countries.

Womankind Worldwide is an international women’s rights charity working to support women and girls to improve their lives and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We partner with women’s rights organisations on the ground, which are working to tackle the issues that affect women’s lives.
Women’s rights are at the heart of everything we do and we do it because we’re passionate about equality. We’ve been committed to supporting women and girls to claim their rights since we were founded on International Women’s Day in 1989.

The power of partnership

We currently work in partnership with 31 women’s rights organisations to challenge discrimination, end violence and improve the rights and choices of women and girls. With our partners we are reaching women and girls in 13 countries – from Afghanistan to Bolivia to Zimbabwe.
Together we support women directly – from providing refuges and counselling for survivors of violence, to leadership and business skills training. We also support women, their families and communities indirectly – by raising awareness of women’s rights and working to change legislation, policies and practice. In 2013-2014 Womankind and our partners directly supported 119,878 women and girls. And we provided indirect support to 5.9 million women, girls, men and boys.
