Donate Matching Funds

KAIROS needs to raise 1.3 million dollars in matching funds to sustain the Women of Courage: Women, Peace & Security program. Will you help us?

KAIROS’ Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security program supports grassroots women’s organizations that are building sustainable, just and inclusive peace in Colombia, Palestine/Israel, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and the Philippines, all of which have experienced long-term conflict. Among other things, these organizations provide counseling, legal support, human rights training and accompaniment to women victims and survivors of militarized conflict. They strive to increase the participation of women in peace processes at all levels.

Global Affairs Canada is providing the Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security program with financial support from 2018 to 2023, making it possible for KAIROS’ partner organizations to greatly expand their capacity and increase their impact.

KAIROS needs to raise funds to match the government’s contribution and we need your help! Every dollar you donate to our Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security partners will generate an additional $3 in funding from Global Affairs Canada.
