We are passionate about restoring dignity and worth to families and communities who struggle with the effects of living in extreme poverty. WOW works in developing nations to give communities a hand up, not a hand out enabling them to create a sustainable future. 

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.

WOW Christmas Appeal 


Help make it a WOW Christmas

We love our name! The word WOW means an exclamation of amazement, for something pleasing or good. Further more it stands for something great – World of Worth. We are passionate about building a world in which people know they have great value and worth in God’s eyes.

So this year, we want to bless all the men, women and children in our projects, for them to open a gift this Christmas and say WOW! Giving a gift expresses love and care, and that is what WOW is all about, expressing our love and care to those who have been neglected, abandoned and marginalised.

Please will you help us to buy a gift this Christmas by donating to our Christmas appeal. We are asking for a donation of £10, but welcome all donations, no matter how small (or large!)
