World of Worth is passionate about restoring dignity and hope to women and girls, helping them to understand that they have value and worth. We want women who have been marginalised, neglected and abandoned to experience love and compassion, and provide them with opportunities to transform their world through our WOW Programmes. 



Why we focus on helping women

  • ·If all girls had secondary education, child marriages would fall by 64%
  • ·Educated women are less likely to die in childbirth and their children are more likely to be vaccinated and given good nutrition
  • ·A child born to a mother who can read is 50 percent more likely to survive past the age of 5 than a child born to an illiterate woman
  • ·More than 800 million people are suffering from hunger in the world, and some 70 percent of them are women and children."

Meet Joyce who is with one of the WOW team in Uganda, Joyce has been on the WOW project since 2012 and her life has been transformed with the support and training she has received.

Women are disadvantaged in many ways. It is common for women to be marginalised, face gender inequality and to be subjected to violence and abuse. Many women lose all rights to property when their husbands die, and are left destitute, living on the streets with their children. Many girls are denied the right of an education, have no access to healthcare and are not safe, even in their own homes. This means that women and girls are vulnerable and oppressed.
