Our impact

Over nearly 25 years Womankind has helped 12 million women transform their lives and their communities.

Our partnership approach creates lasting change on three levels.

  1. Change for individuals – delivering practical services such as safe houses, legal advice, education and information.
  2. Change for communities – giving women leaders the confidence, skills and knowledge to support and educate other women, and change men’s attitudes to women’s rights.
  3. Changing the big picture – influencing local, national and international decision makers, sharing what works and making sure women’s rights and development work is properly resourced and prioritised by people with the clout to make change happen.
