Feminenza in the United Kingdom

About 90 of the 500 volunteers are located in the United Kingdom. Homemakers, educators, psychologists, physicians, therapists, artists, community and youth workers, and activists and specialists, continue to work with communities and charities in the UK:

  • Hosting regular gatherings for women in the Greater London area, Nottinghamshire, West Wales; providing courses and workshops both directly for the public as well as for charities and community based organisations
  • Hosting inter-faith community gatherings and concerts on Forgiveness
  • Assisting:
    • the disadvantaged
    • the elderly
    • traveller community
    • trafficked women
    • persons in prison
    • displaced communities and refugees
    • those escaping forced marriage and honour killings
    • lives locked in stress depression and anxiety
    • those facing death or bereavement

Feminenza volunteers, in addition to designing and developing most of the courses now in use worldwide, directly improving lives on four continents, have also been vital to our fund raising efforts:

  • For the 2006 UNESCO PEER conference in Nairobi, ‘Utu na Ndugu’ (Humanity and Gender), to support some 180 NGOs from the great lakes region of Africa, through a week long gathering on gender respect, FGM, value for our common humanity
  • Distributing more than 1100 computers for schools and colleges, complete with fully up-to-date copies of Microsoft Office and an educational toolkit
  • Securing two major traunches of EU Erasmus funding to enable Feminenza to benefit some 30 charities and NGO in the UK, Europe and the Middle East (Click here for more information on our 2021 Erasmus project)

Originally established as a non-profit organisation in 2000, Feminenza UK eventually merged with Feminenza International in 2018.
