Leave a gift in your will

leave_a_gift_in_your_will

Remembering Womankind in your Will is a positive way to help our work, and make a lasting impact on women’s lives. We don’t know what will happen in the future and can’t always plan for what’s to come but gifts in Wills give us security so that we know we can support the women we work with whatever happens.

What your gift could achieve

In 2014 Womankind supporter Nancy left £30,000 to our work in her Will. The money was split between three projects which urgently needed funding, including one in Afghanistan run by our partners the Afghan Women's Network (AWN) and Humanitarian Aid for Women and Children (HAWCA).

Last year AWN produced a radio programme informing people about the End Violence Against Women law, including information about how women can access support if they experience violence. And HAWCA has trained 80 women human rights defenders on effective campaigning and using the law to bring justice.

A gift of £15,000 left to Womankind in a supporter’s Will has meant that our Ethiopian partner Siiqqee could support women and girls who are vulnerable to female genital mutilation and forced marriage. They formed women’s clubs, which give women emotional support and practical help, such as literacy classes and business training.
