Shortlisted Doing Good logo

This recognition is very encouraging indeed. As always, we will be taking the chance to tell the world about our grassroots partners. Our Field Partners are key to our work and ethos.

Safe World for Women has Field Partners working at the grassroots in many countries throughout the developing world. Though the members and beneficiaries rarely have internet access, each group has a representative who is able to send us news for publication, including quotes from the beneficiaries, so that these women and children are given a voice.
