MADRE - Global women's rights 

MADRE partners with grassroots women on the frontlines of war and disaster. Together, we meet urgent needs and create lasting change.


We Partner for Social Change

MADRE partners with grassroots women's groups facing war, disaster and their aftermath. Together, we meet urgent needs and build women's capacity to create positive social change.

We Advocate for Human Rights

MADRE applies the tools of human rights advocacy to create social change with our partners. We make international law accountable to the people it's meant to serve.

Our Time Capsule

As Trump becomes president, your resilience in the days ahead will be vital. That’s because protecting our rights and communities will require all of us: you, MADRE and committed activists around the world. We’re giving you a space to capture the beliefs you hold most dear. 

We joined a convoy to deliver medical supplies and equipment to set up a children's hospital on the northern outskirts of Aleppo.

Americans will need to reclaim and invent their own modes of resistance.

For inspiration and role models, they can turn to women’s rights activists worldwide.


With you and with MADRE, our grassroots partners protect and provide for the most vulnerable. They build new skills and grow as community leaders. And they bring their demands to policymakers and advocate for rights, resources and results.



Where We Work

Our partners and projects span the globe: Nicaragua, Guatemala, Haiti, Colombia, Kenya, Palestine, Syria and Iraq.



Together, we save lives, rebuild communities and secure women's rights worldwide.
