Who Is Madre?

We live in a time of climate disasters, surging conflicts, and rising authoritarianism and it’s only together that we can overcome these challenges and build a better world. That’s why MADRE is growing a global network of grassroots activists, forging solidarity-based relationships with women and girls organizing their communities and connecting them to the resources, tools, and institutions to make a lasting difference.

We’re transcending geographies and generations to deliver sustainable gender, racial, climate, and disability justice.

That’s who we are.

If that sounds like you too, then it’s time you got connected with MADRE.

“MADRE succeeds because we center the leadership of women and girls in their own communities and build deep relationships based on trust and solidarity with grassroots organizations taking a holistic approach to lasting change.”

Yifat Susskind, Executive Director of MADRE

We’re rising to global challenges with local leaders

Our mission is to advance women’s human rights by meeting urgent needs in communities and building lasting solutions to crises defined by women and girls.
