Forum on Women for the Third Millennium is an initiative promoted by Fundación Mujeres Felices, a non-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment of women and the defense of their rights.
What do we do?
We advocate for women’s empowerment and work to defend our rights.
Defense of women’s rights.
We offer psychological and legal support to women who have been subjected to abuse and distinct forms of discrimination.
We organize conferences, courses and workshops to develop women’s abilities, as well as to provide them with the tools for self-awareness and emotional intelligence.
Fight against FGM – Female Genital Mutilation.
Every day thousands of girls are mutilated. We conduct awareness campaigns in the villages of the Yatenga region, in Burkina Faso, so that families stop mutilating their daughters. We also make it easier for women and girls who suffer serious physical and psychological as a result of FGM to access restorative surgery.
We promote the collection of signatures online, for concrete objectives oriented towards achieving greater social justice for women.
Forum on Women for the Third Millennium.
We conduct international meetings for women to discuss the issues that most interest us for our personal and professional fulfillment.
