We are a Swiss non-profit association, catalysing positive change for marginalised women in the Middle East.
We are born out of a strong, genuine desire, and need to improve the lives Arab women – especially those living in difficult conditions and/or being affected by war and conflict, or other disasters in the region.
We support women to change their lives, be the best version of themselves and contribute to a better society, by giving them vital life and work skills; employability and entrepreneurship skills; and tools to overcome challenges from within.
Each year thousands of women seek our support, each with their own story of loss, trauma, violence, and/or other crippling disadvantages. We invest in these women’s potential.
We have seen that with our support, women can change their lives, break the marginalisation cycles, and seize opportunities to build better futures for themselves and their families.
is to Connect, Inspire, and Empower Arab women to transform challenges into positive change opportunities.
is to create a community of Arab women who are resilient and successful.
