The organizations main headquarters is located on 32-36 Loman Street, London, SE1, OEH, UK. Their telephone number is (020) 7992-7100. For general questions about the organization they can be emailed at general@womenforwomen.org . The founder and CEO of the organization, Zainab Salbi, is an activist and social entrepreneur.

Women for Women International provides women survivors of war, domestic issues and
