For 40 years, MADRE has built strong, long-term relationships, while responding during times of crisis, as part of an integrated approach to change.
Our relationships are built on trust and respect as we work with communities as a resource for liberation.
We engage challenges from multiple directions, addressing communities’ urgent needs, advancing new policies, and convening advocates to learn from one another and build the capacity for greater achievements.
Through our deep networks around the globe, MADRE builds solidarity and creates community among its partners, bridging the expertise and lived experiences within each community to implement change.
MADRE directs funding to people who are left out of places of power, trusting the expertise and solutions of local women, girls, and LGBTQIA+ people of all genders who are on the frontlines and know their communities best.
