About Foundation for Women’s Empowerment
The Foundation for Women's Empowerment (FWE) is an independent and non-profit local women’s foundation based in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) which is fully committed to supporting initiatives by Women`s Grassroots Organizations (WGOs) aimed at promoting empowerment of women, women`s human rights and gender equality.
The FWE was born in response to enormous calls by WGOs across the country to create a mechanism for channelling technical and financial assistance for supporting their relevant initiatives in advancing women’s human rights, gender equality and social justice.
The FWE supports efforts and investments towards women´s empowerment, women's rights and gender equality by strengthening the internal and external capacities of WGOs and women’s groups in order for them to be able to claim their rights, access funds and make women’s voices heard.
The FWE work is based on programs under the program pillar of service:
a) Strengthening the capacities of women´s grass root organizations and women´s groups
b) Facilitation in the strengthening /building of women´s movement and activism through the model of „wheel of the change“, whose importance and meaning has been enriched during the implementation of FWE programs (mentoring/expert mission/coaching to women's organizations)
Since its establishment, through the FWE support, 63 women's organisations and groups are being strengthened to be the disseminators of advocacy knowledge and experience, and then being empowered to take over the role of leaders in the communities who strengthen the other less developed women's organisations and groups, as well to proactively contribute to the women human rights.
