Middle East

Wadi is a Middle Eastern organization that runs various projects that help empower women and youth. Founded in 1993, Wadi has since helped thousands of individuals reach their full potential through their comprehensive program which includes reading and writing courses, legal consulting, and tailored personal finance plans.

What makes Wadi stand out is the continuity they bring to each case – victims can easily reach a mobile team to discuss issues from medical care to crisis intervention. We believe in this sustained approach to change, and are a proud partner of Wadi through the Norwa Fund. In addition, we have provided raw materials like silver beads from our Karen craftspeople to bolster the existing jewelry business of many women in the area.
