How We Work
Meeting Immediate Needs
Women cannot develop long-term solutions to the crises they face when they are struggling to ensure their family’s daily survival. MADRE therefore works to meet urgent needs as a necessary component of creating social change.
Partnering for Social Change
MADRE partners with community-based women's organizations that share our vision of a world where all people enjoy the full range of human rights. MADRE works with our sister organizations to meet urgent needs in their communities and enhance women's capacity to create positive social change.
Advocating for Human Rights
