Women for Women International, a fabulous organization founded by Zainab Salbi works to empower women survivors of war, was our very first partner. They have been our most valued partner, as they helped us launch our work in 2008 in Baghdad, Iraq with a group of women (mostly war widows) who had graduated from the Women for Women sponsorship program. Without their support, we simply couldn’t have started our work. And it certainly wouldn’t have been as well-designed for the women in Iraq.
Here is a screenshot of a blog post that they just featured us in:
Now we’re excited to share that we are also collaborating with Women for Women Headquarters in Washington DC. Not only are we working with graduates, but we’re teaming up to spread the word about great work that supports women survivors of war around the world. We’re proud to say that two of our candle gifts make a charitable donation to their work. We’re also very excited that we are about to get started on some Women for Women tin candles that will be used as donor gifts!
We believe strongly that hand in hand we will be able to create tremendous impact for women around the world. We look forward to partnering with Women for Women into the future to create gifts that change women’s lives.
