Learning More About How we Support Women in War-torn Countries

At Arya we passionately believe that businesses have the ability to change lives, therefore we want every Arya candle to have a positive impact. As such, we are sponsoring women through Women for Women International. Since 1993, WfWi has helped nearly 620,000 women in 8 countries affected by war and conflict, offering them support, tools and life-changing skills.  With new stability, strength and economic self-sufficiency the women can begin to rebuild their lives.

Due to increased security concerns in many of the countries Women for Women International work in, it is important for them to take security measures to protect the women in the program. We fully respect the security of the women we sponsor, and therefore won't be sharing any photos or personal details which may compromise their safety.

So far we have supported 10 women through this program, from countries such as South Sudan, Rwanda, and Bosnia. Our most recent sister is from Afghanistan.
