We support local organisations who work for women’s rights in countries across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Our goal is a future in which women have a seat at the decision-making table. In which girls can grow up in freedom, unthreatened by violence. In which women’s rights are respected, in every area of life.

Our work in MENA is conducted from our offices in Amman, Beirut, Erbil, Jerusalem and Tunis.

“People used to think women’s rights organisations just chatted and did handicrafts. Today, they are perceived as human rights defenders with the power to bring change.”

– Linda Säll, regional manager for the MENA region
