This year, we are glad Canada is taking leadership to champion gender equality, and the health and rights of girls and women.

As God's image-bearers, male and female, we commit ourselves to fulfil our values for people flourishing and stewardship of each of our unique gifts.

World Renew is committed to work for gender equality in all aspects of organizational culture and through all our relief and development programs.

Speaking of gender, we refer to restoring right relationships between men and women. World Renew promotes the development of positive feminine and masculine identities

Though progress has been made, women and girls are still disproportionately affected by poverty, justice and discrimination. Thus, World Renew engages in programs that empower women and girls to more fully participate in their communities.

As a Christian organization, we believe that men and women are created in God's image as equals, that the brokeness of sin affects the way men and women relate to and treat one another and that we are called to model and work towards the healing and restoration of these broken relationships. 

From February 3-9 at events across the country, join our community of international development and humanitarian aid organizations in celebrating #IDW2019!

Around the world, support from Canada and from the Government of Canada is making a difference in the lives of women and girls.
