Women's Centers International

Home of the Women's Centers Movement

WCI creates safe gathering places in resource-poor environments where women can acquire new skills, a support network, and agency over their lives.  

A Woman's Center fosters healing and growth, enabling each woman to build

a prosperous future for herself and her community.
