Women At Risk, International (WAR, Int’l) is a Grand Rapids-based, nonprofit organization, established to create circles of protection around at-risk women and children. Through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects and partnerships, we provide safe places to heal from abuse, trafficking, exploitation, and more. Our passion is to empower survivors to live and work with dignity and hope.
WAR, Int’l enables the creation of safe places for women and children and also gives a voice to their silenced cries. By educating communities about risk issues and providing individuals with practical ways to take action, we extend our reach through you.
Our programs and partnerships span the globe, reaching over 40 countries, including the United States. Each month, additional projects and partnerships are formed, increasing our ability to offer the rescued and at-risk a “hand-up” instead of a handout.
This year WAR, Int’l celebrates its 10th year of rescuing, redeeming, and empowering those at risk as a formal, incorporated 501c3 entity. Our theme for 2016 is “Sent to Serve,” with a focus on servant leadership. Christ came not to be served but to serve. This truth can be found at the very core of WAR, Int’l, and we look forward to sharing our hearts with you this year through this very theme.
We hold ourselves to a higher standard. We strive to serve those who are wounded with excellence, which means we are always learning and growing. We also strive for excellence in the product we sell. We aren’t interested in pity purchases. The jewelry we sell has to be crafted with utmost care. When you purchase jewelry from our WAR Chest Boutique, you are paying for the work of another woman’s hands, creating a dignity we could never manufacture. WAR, Int’l is committed to excellence and we have you to thank for your gifts, prayers, and partnerships in this battle against exploitation and brokenness.
