Where We Work

  

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

 

Our Partners

Our partners are grassroots women's groups who have joined with MADRE to build programs that meet urgent needs in their communities and create lasting solutions to the crises they confront.

Our Projects

The projects that MADRE and our partners run together are women-led and guided by the priorities of local communities. 

 

Shelter Without Walls

project

Indigenous women on Nicaragua's North Atlantic coast face poverty, discrimination and violence. What’s more, these acts of violence are often met with impunity. MADRE works with a grassroots women's organization called Wangki Tangni. We work with communities to confront issues of violence and train women to document violations.

The Underground Railroad for Iraqi Women

project

Women are at severe risk of rape, sexual slavery and kidnapping. They need urgent aid, shelter and emergency relocation. With MADRE, our local partner called the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq (OWFI), is there. We deliver humanitarian aid and safe passage, even to women in ISIS-controlled areas.

Freedom for All

Thousands of Haitians today face violence and discrimination because of their gender identity and sexual orientation. MADRE partners with grassroots Haitian women’s and LGBT groups, including FACSDIS and SEROvie, to create safe spaces to organize and to advance new protections against violence.
