Mission Statement

MADRE is an international women's human rights organization that partners with women who have survived human rights violations and resolved to rebuild their lives and communities. Using a human rights framework, MADRE works to meet urgent needs and ultimately, change conditions that give rise to human rights abuses. And MADRE advocates alternatives to destructive policies of governments and other centers of power. MADRE works in the areas of peace building, women's health/combating violence against women, and economic and environmental justice. MADRE implements these programs through four primary strategies: partnerships with community-based women's organizations; public education and media work; human rights advocacy; and resource mobilization (see guiding principles of strategies). Through these strategies, MADRE promotes rights, provides resources, and delivers results for women worldwide.

Budget:

Category:
Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy
Population Served:
Female Adults

Program Description:

Health is not only the absence of disease or infirmity, but also a state of physical, mental and social well-being. The strongest determinants of health are the social, political and economic forces in our lives. How healthy we are depends enormously on our access to nutritious food, clean water and medical care, on the levels of violence and stress in our lives, on our working conditions and on the opportunities we have for love, pleasure and fulfillment. Health, then, is inextricably linked to human rights. In fact, social and economic inequality, both between men and women and among different groups of women, is the biggest obstacle to good health for women around the world.

Program Description:

MADRE recognizes the many different ways that war impacts women's human rights and gender relations. These programs work to enhance women's capacities to prevent, survive, resolve, and recover from situations of armed conflict. MADRE programs address the exploitation of child soldiers, the use of rape as a weapon of war and the impact of militarization and forced displacement on women and families. They offer trauma counseling for women and youth, protection from domestic and political violence and critical health care and education services for those who have been forced to flee their homes.

Program Description:

This year, the UN Meteorological Organization warned of record-breaking extreme weather on every continent. Around the world, wars are raging over natural resources. While a handful of the world's people continue to get richer, nearly 900 million, most of them women and girls, suffer from hunger and malnutrition - and that number is rising. Meanwhile, as many as 140,000 species are becoming extinct each year - more than at any other time in human history.  Clearly, the world has reached a tipping point in its ability to absorb the harmful impacts of unsustainable resource use, economic greed, and militarism. This planet-wide crisis is the defining issue of our time: never before have we faced a web of problems that threatens the survival of humanity and the life of the planet itself. But we are also on the verge of another tipping point, as hopeful as the threat is grave. More and more people are realizing that we cannot continue to live outside the laws of nature and that we have the capability to reinvent our economies and habitats on a sustainable basis and in ways that safeguard human rights. Around the world, strong public consciousness is spreading about the interrelationships between the problems that threaten our communities and the ecosystems on which we depend. Increasingly, people are focused on creating concrete, realizable solutions that are both local and systemic. MADRE's work with women and families around the world beats at the heart of this movement to reset the course of the world. In communities where we work - in Sudan, Iraq, Nicaragua, Palestine, Haiti, Guatemala, Kenya, Peru, Colombia and Panama - women experience this global crisis on a daily basis. They face wars, environmental destruction, poverty, and gender-based violence. Yet, they reject catastrophic end-of-the-world scenarios because they know that change is not only possible - it is already happening. It is the women themselves who are creating this change in partnership with MADRE.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.
