INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 

 

WHAT IF

  

Imagine a world in which the basic human rights of every woman and girl are respected.

 

#WhatIf girls and women everywhere benefitted from education, healthcare, the opportunity to earn an income, protection from violence and exploitation, access to new technologies, participation in political life?

 

#WhatIf we invested in the potential of girls and women, so girls and women could live safe, dignified lives and thrive?

 

Fuelled by the power of digital technologies, a committed team of passionate social entrepreneurs, and the support of our wonderful donors & supporters, W4 works every day to ensure that girls’ and women’s safety, needs and rights are respected across the globe and to foster girls’ and women’s potential.

 

How do we do it? We support high-impact, grassroots projects, run by local staff who understand the specific realities and challenges of their local communities, that are providing services and opportunities to protect girls’ and women’s human rights and promote girls’ and women’s empowerment. 

Why did we create W4?

Because empowering girls and women is both an urgent global imperative and immense global opportunity. The benefits of investing in girls’ and women’s empowerment are simply huge: it improves not only the welfare and life prospects of individual girls, women, and their families, but also that of entire communities and societies!

 

Consistently, across the globe, it has been shown that by protecting girls’ and women’s human rights and investing in girls and women’s potential, we drive socioeconomic progress, enhance business performance, boost GDP, combat extremism, promote peace and stability, at national and international levels.

 

And thanks to digital technology, today, everyone, no matter where she or he is located, can be part of the solution and support grassroots projects to improve the lives, even save the lives, of girls and women around the world and achieve real, sustainable, positive change for girls and women, their families and communities.

What If Ecard AccessTechnology2

 

At W4 we envision a peaceful, fairer, sharing world… A world in which women and men everywhere are able to live dignified lives, free from poverty and the violation of human rights… 

 

#WhatIf, together, we could achieve this vision? 

At W4 we believe we can…

We invite you to join us!

 

#WhatIf in Democratic Republic of Congo
#WhatIf all girls and women could live free from violence?

 

We invite you to discover our field program in DR Congo where W4 works to help women survivors of rape and sexual violence to rebuild their lives.

 

The women in our program are treated at the Panzi hospital by Congolese gynaecologist Dr Denis Mukwege. Dr Mukwege won the 2014 Sakharov Award, the highest human rights accolade awarded by the European Parliament.

 

Through functional literacy and income-generating training programs, the women are able to create sustainable livelihoods and earn an income to provide for themselves and their children. The W4 program helps the women to gradually rebuild their self-confidence and overcome their trauma.
