A History-making Moment for Colombia!

After almost four years of negotiations and a half-century of war, the Colombian government and the armed rebel group known as the FARC have reached a breakthrough ceasefire and disarmament agreement.
 

When drought came to her farming village in Kenya, 12-year-old Mercy was sold as a 'drought-bride'. But it didn't have to happen. Make a lifesaving gift to support women and girls worldwide today. 

 

MADRE organizes with women’s and LGBTIQ rights activist to create safe spaces in dangerous places. We share strategies, launch campaigns and build power together. 

Peace is near in Colombia. But with the promise of a peace agreement this week, a vital question remains: How can we ensure that a signed piece of paper translates into lasting peace on the ground?

 

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.
