Woman for Freedom: together for women

Woman for Freedom is an independent humanitarian organization created to fight the discrimination and exploitation of women and children in conditions of emergency, hardship and poverty in every part of the world.

Davide Parise, founder of the humanitarian organization Women for Freedom explains:
“With these funds we are able to make the difference. We walk side by side with many girls on their first day of their return to school in Nepal, to accompany them along a path towards education and liberation from prejudices.

We are at their side in Cameroon, when they use their first loan of the micro-credit program to start their own businesses; and we celebrate with them when they become independent and able to provide for their children’s needs.

We are in India, alongside all the girls who, thanks to education, find the courage to make their voices, their ideas and their opinions heard, regardless of the socio-economic context they come from.

We are in Romania, alongside those who teach children every day that a difficult childhood can be turned into a peaceful life. And this year we will also be on the impervious mountain passes on the border between Nepal and India, to monitor every suspicious car and to rescue the young victims of human trafficking before it is too late. We will welcome them, shake their hands, and help them find their way home’.
