South Sudan is currently facing a serious economic and food security crisis. An estimated 4 million people are in urgent need of food. While most large scale humanitarian relief efforts are focused on bringing food into the country, Women for Women International (WfWI) is on the ground teaching women how to make their own. But we can't do it without your help! WfWI is raising critical funds for training tools like brick wood-burning ovens in our South Sudan country offices. Your donation will give program participants the chance to learn the skills and access the tools they need to start bakeries that provide food for their communities and a source of income for their families.
In countries affected by conflict and war, Women for Women International supports the most marginalized women to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, she is able to create sustainable change for herself, her family, and community. For over 20 years, WfWI has helped more than 407,000 women in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Sudan.
WfWI's yearlong program provides women in conflict-affected areas with financial and emotional aid, job-skills training, rights education and small business assistance so they can transform their lives. In WfWI's South Sudan country office, program participants receive job-skills training in bakery. Participants trained in bakery are not only learning how to prepare bread, mandazi, and doughnuts, but also how to effectively market and sell their goods. Donate today and give these women the tools they need to create a better future for themselves and their families.
