Support our Project with MADRE
2015 International Initiative
This year Women Across Frontiers (WAF) is supporting MADRE, an international women’s human rights organization, to raise funds for the Women’s Peace Farm they run in Karbala, Iraq. The Peace Farm serves fifty-four displaced women farmers and children who have fled their homes in fear of ISIS attacks. The Farm allows these women to achieve self-sufficiency, provide for their families, and support each other.
Help us keep the Women’s Peace Farm up and running with vital supplies like:
- GARDENING TOOLS – $15 EACH X 25 = $375
- PACKETS OF SEEDS (10 VARIETIES) – $320 X 10 = $3,200
- LUMP SUM TO PURCHASE GOATS = $1,500
- LUMP SUM TO PURCHASE CHICKENS = $500
- TOTAL = $5,575
MADRE advances women’s human rights by meeting urgent needs in communities and building lasting solutions to the crises women face. To advance social justice, women must be equipped to both improve conditions in their communities and advocate for human rights. When grassroots women’s organizations provide vital services to their communities, women can build new skills, step up as leaders and mobilize for rights-based policies. Local women’s organizations play a vital role in translating human rights standards from paper to practice to create social justice.
MADRE strengthens grassroots women’s organizations in war, disaster and their aftermath.
MADRE supports our partners to meet urgent community needs and trains and accompanies women to effect long-term change.
MADRE galvanizes people around the world in support of our partners’ demands by shaping public opinion and policy.
Help us and MADRE to support the Women’s Peace Farm today by contributing to our campaign.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
