Peace Building

MADRE recognizes the many different ways that war impacts women's human rights and gender relations. These programs work to enhance women's capacities to prevent, survive, resolve, and recover from situations of armed conflict.

MADRE programs address the exploitation of child soldiers, the use of rape as a weapon of war and the impact of militarization and forced displacement on women and families. They offer trauma counseling for women and youth, protection from domestic and political violence and critical health care and education services for those who have been forced to flee their homes.
