WCI creates safe gathering places  in environments that exclude women from key resources. 

A Women's Center provides skills training and a support network to foster women's agency over their lives.  

A Women's Center promotes healing from trauma and personal growth, enabling each woman

to build the future she desires for herself, her family, and her community. 

Success Stories

from Baraka Women's Center 

Judy Awuor Success Story

"She asked me if I needed another job far from my husband and a place I can be protected, counseled, and mentored as a young mother. I was so thrilled and I agreed. The following day she came for me and we went to Baraka Women’s Center."

T. Wairimu Success Story

"BWC is surely a place for women who are desperate and have nowhere to go. One day with them changed my life completely."

The Women's Centers Guide

This Guide presents best practices for establishing and operating a Women’s Center in environments where women are marginalized by conflict and poverty.


The knowledge offered in this Guide derives from successes and failures during field application of the Women’s Centers Model in four locations since 2006.


The Model is rooted in the millennia-old tradition of women gathering for mutual support. A Women’s Center enhances this tradition with contemporary tools and management practices for resource delivery. The Model can be adapted across cultures and demographic contexts.
