Women Now for Development is the largest women’s network working to empower Syrian women and children through social, economic and cultural participation inside Syria and its neighbouring countries. Its mission is to initiate programmes led by Syrian women that protect Syrian women and children across socio-economic backgrounds.
The organization aims to empower women to find their political voice and participate in building a new, peaceful Syria that respects and safeguards equal rights for all its citizens. Women Now for Development works in four main focus areas: protection, empowerment, participation, and research and advocacy, providing programs such as vocational training, leadership training, psychosocial support, health workshops, and creative activities for children.
