Too many women, children and young people die needlessly and don't have control over their futures.

We don't have the answers, communities do.

By the end of 2021 we will support 10,000 local communities to save the lives of 10,000 women, children and young people and enable 1,000,000 more to live the lives they choose. 

Join Women and Children First in putting communities first.


Watch how we support communities to solve problems and save lives


Women and Children First do an incredible job of supporting and empowering communities to help the most vulnerable both survive and thrive.

The community-led women’s health groups are proven to save thousands of lives and improve standards of health.

It is amazing to see the levels of trust the women build to overcome their problems. Their approach is both genuinely different and incredibly effective.

I would thoroughly recommend supporting Women and Children First, who champion the community-led approach to solving health problems.
