FAQ

What is the aim of WWSF?

To serve the implementation of women's and children's rights.

To assist the fulfillment of the UN Millenium Development goals.

1) Empower rural women worldwide, one of the most marginalized groups on the planet, to become leading development actors in their local communities, and make them aware of their human right to equality, peace, land, clean water, food, education, health care and improved opportunities for a better life. 60-70 percent of the world's poor are rural women.

2) Create a worldwide culture of prevention of abuse and violence against children by mobilizing an international coalition of NGOs, governments and the media to educate children and the public at large on effective prevention measures, protective skills and on their right to dignity.
