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’s year-long training programme. Since 1993, Women for Women International has helped nearly 479,000 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 programme. 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. However, please do click on the links below to learn more.

So far we have supported 11 women through their programme, from countries such as South Sudan, Rwanda, and Bosnia.
