Women Matters (Women-2-Women Support)

To ensure that gender equality underpins all of the work we do, AWI UK has created Women Matter’s programme which specifically target women’s economic empowerment and gender rights. We support women to gain knowledge, skills and tools to generate an income, enabling them to lift their families out of poverty. AWI UK believe By providing vulnerable women with the knowledge, resources, and agency to have greater influence in the household and community decisions that affect their lives and their family, they can drive both poverty reduction and gender equality
