Safe World For Women?

Post  mood2 on Mon Dec 31, 2012 7:32 pm


It's incredibly frustrating to see story after story about how women are oppressed around the world and feel like there's nothing you can do to make a difference, and your government is equally ineffectual.

Safe World For Women is an organisation which says it wants to address that problem and has come up with a way which aims to help us to support and empower those women. In order to grow and be effective SWFW needs people to know about them, financial support and volunteers who can bring their skills and social contacts. Please check it out.



SAFE WORLD FOR WOMEN

The Safeworld International Foundation (Safe World for Women) is a women-led not-for-profits organisation working with grassroots groups to promote the rights of women and children.

We believe that women’s empowerment and sustainable development are key to tackling the root causes of poverty and oppression, and will bring about positive social and economic change at a global level. Furthermore, grassroots initiatives are key to bringing about positive change in a culturally-sustainable way.

Independent from government, corporate, religious or political interests, we highlight abuse of women's rights throughout the world, educate and mobilize the public, and campaign to improve policy and attitudes.

Webzine

The hub of our work is our webzine.

It provides a platform for grassroots groups and serves as a resource of articles on women’s rights issues, including our interviews with women human rights defenders.

Our webzine is updated daily, and features important issues impacting women and children, campaigns for rights defenders and profiles the work of grassroots organisations

With our team of correspondents on the ground, we work to abolish human trafficking and slavery, domestic violence, poverty, war crimes and all forms of abuse of women and children. We campaign for women's rights advocates who have been unjustly detained.

Field Partners

Safeworld forms partnerships with small, grassroots groups and organisations throughout the world - Field Partners.


"Our underlying principle is that grassroots groups are best-placed to bring about behavioural change in a culturally-sensitive and sustainable way, through their established relationship with local leaders, schools, communities and beneficiaries, and local knowledge.

Through working with locally-based groups, we can help to make sustainable changes in a culturally-sensitive and empowering way.
Please help us to help others!"
Chris Crowstaff, Founder, Safe World for Women

Safeworld Field Partners are community groups and organisations, working with women and children at a regional level, dealing directly with issues such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, conflict, rape, child marriage, child labour, access to education, social and cultural exclusion, isolation, marginalisation, and stigmatisation.

Many of our Field Partners do not have a website of their own, and most of them do not have an online fundraising facility.

The Safe World webzine provides our Field Partners with a 'window to the world', helping to raise their profile, give them a voice and to connect them with potential funders.

For selected Field Partners, we set up fundraising appeals, so that supporters can donate online to them via our Paypal account.

Volunteers


We are all volunteers and our diverse, multi-cultural team isspread throughout the globe.

Social Media

Through our extensive social media network, we connect women and women’s organisations from different backgrounds and cultures, in order to promote dialogue and collaboration on key issues affecting women and children. We collaborate in campaigns with other advocacy organisations.

Safe World is active on the social media, with over 19,000 followers on Twitter and over 5,000 supporters on Facebook.

Advocacy and Mainstream Media


As well as advocating via our webzine and the social media, we also advocate for women human rights defenders via our contacts in the mainstream media in the UK and France, arranging interviews, media tours and events.

Student Writers

We help to amplify the voices of young people, through our Student Writers Project – a platform for young people to write about issues that concern them and their communities. The project gives university students, both women and men, a chance to gain experience in the field of women's rights and journalism.

A Safe World for Women is a safe world for all.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Safe World is independent of any government, political or religious ideology or commercial interest and we depend entirely on private donations.

Interesting looking charity - but I can't find any reference to them on the UK charity commission site. Could be that they haven't completed their formal registration yet. The other thing that concerns me is that the woman in charge of the organisation has a homoeopathy qualification.

Other than that they seem to have worthy goals and on the site they claim that they have no affiliation with any religion or political organisation.

I'd not heard of them before someone posted about them on the Secular Cafe board, but he doesn't know much about them either. I don't know about their charitable status (I made a donation and there was no 'Gift Aid' option so I assume they're not a registered charity, yet at least)> They call themselves a non-profit company limited by guarantee, which I had to look up - wiki says this ' In British and Irish company law, a private company limited by guarantee is an alternative type of corporation used primarily for non-profit organisations that require legal personality.' cont'd' here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_company_limited_by_guarantee

I wasn't trying to imply anything untoward about them, but I always like to know the background of charities before I hand over any money. In the UK the charity commission site is really handy.

http://www.charitycommission.gov.uk/

Given that they aren't a charity then I was able to look up their company number on the Companies House site:

https://www.companieshouse.gov.uk

That yeilded these details:
