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.

When bombing decimated Aleppo, thousands of Syrian families fighting for their lives in the besieged city had no access to medical care and nowhere to turn.

We called on your help. And thanks to MADRE supporters like you, we were able to respond with lifesaving aid and care. 

"Today is the beginning. It may be the start of the Trump Administration, but let it also be the inauguration of something much more powerful: a renewed feminist social justice movement that takes root in each of our lives, throughout the country and around the world."

- Yifat Susskind, MADRE Executive Director

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.
