Since our inception in 2014 Challenge to Change has supported over 27,000 women from 11 Arab nations
We are a Swiss non-profit association, catalysing positive change for marginalised women in the Arab world.
We are born out of a strong, genuine desire, and need to improve the lives Arab women – especially those living in difficult conditions and/or being affected by war and conflict, or other disasters in the region.
We support women to change their lives, be the best version of themselves and contribute to a better society, by giving them vital life and work skills; employability and entrepreneurship skills; and tools to overcome challenges from within.
Each year thousands of women seek our support, each with their own story of loss, trauma, violence, and/or other crippling disadvantages. We invest in these women’s potential.
We have seen that with our support, women can change their lives, break the marginalisation cycles, and seize opportunities to build better futures for themselves and their families.
