Mission and objectives

The organization’s mission is to initiate programmes led by Syrian women that protect Syrian women and children across socio-economic backgrounds, and 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 believes that the struggle for women’s rights – is a wide-ranging (holistic), multi-layered and gradual process, especially in the context of war and atrocities. Moreover, struggle for women rights cannot be separated from struggle for peace and democracy.
The process must include men and young people. It must be based on a needs based approach as well as a rights-based one, building from the grassroots and starting with the most vulnerable and invisible women.
