Since 1983, MADRE has provided direct services, human rights trainings, capacity-building, technical assistance and other forms of support to 88 community-based women’s organizations in over 25 countries.

We mobilize progressive individuals and communities in the United States and across the world to join together in collaborative, compassionate and political response to injustice and violations of women’s human rights.

MADRE enables women who are community activists to participate effectively in improving and implementing international human rights law.

The results of our work with our sister organizations have been felt by women and families in communities worldwide. Click on the links below to learn more.
