The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation supports regional peacebuilding in the Middle East. In 2004 we opened an office in Amman.

The Foundation strengthens women in war zones and conflict-affected areas to increase women’s power and influence to be involved as actors in the economic and political development of their societies. We cooperate with a number of local women organizations in Jordan that work to advance human rights in general and women’s rights in particular.

Our partner organisations work to counter gender-based violence, support women’s economic and political participation and strengthen women’s position in Jordanian society and the region. We provide them with financial assistance, capacity-building, advocacy and strategic support.
