RESPONDING TO EMERGENCIES

In times of conflict or disaster, we address immediate survival needs directly following an emergency — and help individuals, families and communities rebuild their lives in the weeks, months and years to come.

FEATURES

One of the root causes of poverty is women and girls' lack of control over their lives. But once empowered by education, economic opportunity or choice, a woman can be a catalyst for positive change in her community.
