Thank YOU Girlfriends
Because of all the UGG love and support at UGG 2018 we were able to sponsor
5 more sisters rounding our total to... 
37 Sponsored Sisters!
Our 5 new sisters are just a few of the many women living in DR Congo and Afghanistan who have survived war and overcome hunger and abuse. Your support and our UGG sponsorships help lead these women on a path
to a better, brighter and happier future.  
Meet your 5 New Sisters!

Women for Women International gives thousands of women survivors of war the opportunity and hope to start over right now.  Thank you to all of you!  With your support, we continue to be able to donate a portion of our profits to sponsor women of war in the Congo, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Sudan, Rwanda, Iraq, Columbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 

Each Ultimate Girls Getaway event sponsors new Sisters in war torn countries and provides the tools women need to support their families, embrace their rights and actively participate in the rebuilding of their communities.

 

We embrace these Core Values:

 

Equality:  All people are free and equal in dignity and rights; civil, political, social and economic and cultural.

 

Empowerment:  The women who we assist are leaders in their own lives. Tools are provided for each woman to rebuild her life.

 

Respect:  The women we support choose their own value system. Options are presented to each woman but she is responsible for her own choice.

 

Diversity:  Women are not simply refugees or victims of war but are survivors and individuals. No two women require the same support to heal, and no two societies can be rebuilt in the same way. Communication among women of varied backgrounds, national origins, races and religions - both those who need assistance and those who offer it -must honor each other's differences.

 

Investment:  The one-on-one approach deals with macro issues through micro solutions. By strengthening local chapters we attempt to build or strengthen civil societies in the countries where we work.

My mother, Ksenia Piatka, was a women survivor of war over 60 years ago and lost her first born daughter, my sister Mary, while alone en-route to a displacement camp. There were no organizations like Women For Women to help women back then but now there is.
