Where We Work:  Country and Location Profiles 


WCI conducts extensive research on the locations where Women’s Center are – or may be  – established. An intimate understanding of changing political, social, and economic realities informs how the Model is adapted for best outcomes.


We live in a complex world yet can build connections for far-reaching good in faraway places. Our allies in each location are local people who've founded a small CBO to serve the needs of their communities. We are privileged to collaborate with them.


Maps are included for all you map freaks out there. Enjoy the discoveries!
