Supporting Women in Sri Lanka

Empower women with Penny Appeal

Since 2009, Penny Appeal has been building programmes to achieve women’s equality and women’s empowerment all over the world. 

Our work has shown us first-hand how supporting women’s empowerment and fighting for the rights of women and girls can change lives - for them, for their families and even for their countries as a whole.

Our Women’s Welfare programmes have aided in breaking the poverty cycle for many women across the globe, and have played an important part in putting an end to discrimination, eliminating harmful practices and promoting women’s equality.

We have a commitment to keep striving towards women’s empowerment, both internationally and here in the UK as well. Women around the world face a daily struggle for equality, with hurdles such as poverty, disaster and displacement, lack of education and gender based violence.

Find out more about why we need your help to support women around the globe and give them the tools they need to prosper.
