The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation

We are a Swedish foundation that promotes women’s rights in more than 20 war- and conflict-affected countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the South Caucasus.

We do so by supporting over 110 partner organisations – because we believe women’s rights activists know best what women and girls in their country need.

Kvinna till Kvinna focuses on four key issues: gender-based violence, women’s equal participation, economic empowerment and women, peace and security.
