The name of our organization is based on the fact that it was a group of women at a birthday party who started to raise money for a charity project in Kenya. In December 2010 the money was used to buy two dairy cows on a local market. These cows were given to two women from a small village called Liavo. Both are single mothers and by supporting them, we gave them a possibility to provide for their children.
After coming back to Germany, we decided to start an organization. Since April 2011, Women For Women is a registered association in Germany.
