The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundations supports women in conflict-affected regions. We do so by cooperating with more than 100 partner organisations across the world.
We believe in dialogue and long-term partnership. Our strength is that we get to know our partners, listen to them and support their priorities. We do not tell our partners what we believe the solution should be: we trust that they know that best themselves.
Our 12 country offices allow us to be responsive and stand by our partners in their struggle.
We offer our partners core financial support, training and networking opportunities. These are essential for local women’s rights organisations to be able to improve women’s lives. The goal is to strengthen our partners’ capacity, autonomy and sustainability.
With our support, women’s rights organisations can focus on doing what they do best: building a more equal society, promoting democracy and human rights, and achieving sustainable peace.

To forge partnerships, support movements and amplify the voices of women human rights defenders, our work is guided by five cross-cutting approaches:
Applying and developing these approaches both internally and in our work with partners aligns with our global strategy and ensures we operate in an ethical and inclusive way.
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation cooperates with diverse organisations that are active in conflict-affected areas, share our values and are committed to creating change.
Our partners vary in size, area of expertise, outreach capacity and thematic focus.
To become a partner organisation and receive support from us, an organisation needs to fulfil several criteria. These include financial transparency, accountability and compliance with funding conditions.
Please note that Kvinna till Kvinna has a careful internal mapping process to identify potential partners, meaning we do not generally consider spontaneous partnership applications.
