What is WWSF?

WWSF, a humanitarian, secular, non-governmental and international, non-profit organization with United Nations consultative status (ECOSOC, UNFPA and DPI), works for a new development paradigm with and for women and children.

Created in Geneva on 8 March 1991 (International Women’s Day), its principle objective is to empower women, children, youth, and NGOs via its transformative campaigns and Calls to Action to help create a global community that cares and shares.

WWSF programs serve to help implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, speed up women and children’s rights to equality and peace, and hold world leaders accountable to promises made at numerous UN summits and international conferences.
