URI is committed to the equitable participation of women and men in all aspects of our organization.
Many Cooperation Circles are devoted to projects for women, which focus on issues like leadership, domestic violence prevention and counseling, job and skills training, gender equality, education, and preventing female infanticide.
Examples of our work in this Action Area:



  • TRUST WIN CC, a URI group based in Jerusalem, brought 30 Christian, Druze, Jewish, and Muslim women together working to achieve peace at grassroots levels.
  • Impowering Women Economically

    URI MENA Women’s Initiative conducts workshops on “Small Startup Business Project Management” and “Financial Management Skills” across MENA region. So far several workshops were held in Jordan, Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia. Also, a special workshop was organized for Syrian refugee women who are living in Jordan.
