Focus on Women

When living conditions worsen for vulnerable communities, they worsen at even higher rates for women. In destitute circumstances, many women are left widowed, making them the sole providers for themselves and their families. Helping empower women is essential to development across the globe, and providing access to equal opportunities and resources is integral to the mission of Islamic Relief.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Women’s Programs

Islamic Relief is truly dedicated to our women’s programs across the various sectors we work in including food aid; access to clean water and sanitation, health, and education; socio-economic empowerment; and sustainable livelihood opportunities. Around the world, we’re helping women become leaders, not only in their homes, but in their communities. 

A few of our interventions include:

  • Sustainable livelihood support for orphaned, widowed, and female-headed households in Nepal and Pakistan
  • Helping empower women entrepreneurs across the provinces of Balkh, Herat, and Bamyan in Afghanistan
  • Socio-economic empowerment and small business opportunities in Somalia
  • Access to proper healthcare as well as Islamic microfinance opportunities to help pull women out of the cycle of poverty in Mali and Niger

We Need YOUR Help

Thanks to you, we’ve been able to accomplish so much. But there’s still so much more to do. By continuing to support our efforts towards women’s programs, you can help make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need.
