Women's Empowerment Volunteer

Affordable Women's Empowerment Volunteer Abroad Projects

Do you want to volunteer abroad on women’s empowerment programs and create positive change for marginalized women and children?

International Volunteer HQ’s trusted women’s empowerment programs provide volunteers with the opportunity to reduce social inequalities and help tackle women’s rights issues by increasing access to education and vocational training opportunities for women.

As a volunteer with IVHQ, you will support, and build on, the global movement to find solutions to empower women and girls by giving back on education-focused projects dedicated to women’s empowerment in India, Nepal, Kenya or Morocco. These women’s rights volunteer opportunities have a strong focus on education because of the potential it has to enable people to improve their lives.

Many women and girls living in the communities we support face a wide range of social inequalities and often do not have the chance to complete their education or gain financial independence. Your volunteer work will contribute to the long-term goal of assisting social change and creating an inclusive society in which women have equal rights and are able to access education, healthcare and employment opportunities.

Volunteer work can also include empowering women through building confidence, developing financial independence, fostering entrepreneurship skills, and growing strong female leadership - all to support stronger, happier communities around the world.

You can also expect to learn from a cross-cultural exchange, as you and your host community, will be challenged to engage with different cultures, ideas and perspectives.

Whether you’re passionate about increasing positive outcomes for women, or a solo female traveler looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity, IVHQ’s women’s rights and empowerment opportunities are a smart choice.

Volunteer Project Review by Barbara Ryl

I still don't know how to put in words my experience at the Women Empowerment Center in Kathmandu! Just incredible! My main responsibility was to run basic English classes to a group of around 20-30 women who were super eager to learn. I have to admit that I found the experience quite challenging at first as I had to both prepare valuable content and also deliver it in a creative and entertaining way each and every day. Luckily the women at the Women Empowerment Center welcomed me very warmly, and I felt at ease from the very first moment; not even the language barrier was a hindrance. The women proved to be the best students ever – always very engaged and eager to learn. They also opened themselves to me in a way I would never expect. It was an absolutely amazing experience in every aspect.
