WomenOneKenya, Turkey, Jordan, and Eastern and Southern Africa.
WomenOne was founded by former supermodel, author and UNICEF Ambassador Dayle Haddon. Through her work, Dayle encountered many women who helped her understand the challenges and hardships that women face around the world. Their stories of poverty, risk, and unrealized dreams exposed the real circumstances and experiences of so many women who lack educational opportunities. Dayle was moved to take action and get involved.
In 2008, Dayle established WomenOne, a non-profit that works with institutions and partner organizations towards its mission to provide women and girls who are faced with extreme poverty, cultural barriers and conflict-affected environments the opportunity to receive a quality education. WomenOne acts from a rights-based approach and ensures that its activities and programs are innovative, evidence-based and sustainable.
Through research, advocacy and programming, WomenOne has supported secondary schooling for girls in Kenya and Turkey, has partnered with Duke University and Save the Children to support girls education in the Za’atari Refugee Camp in Jordan and is currently developing programs to address the educational needs of adolescent mothers in Eastern and Southern Africa.
