The Foundation for Women (FFW) is a non-profit organization based in Bangkok, Thailand. Founded in 1984, FFW works to protect and promote the rights of women and girls. FFW works for the rights of all women and girls, but particular focus is given to vulnerable populations, such as rural women, women workers, and survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence. Their work involves both advocacy, campaigning for laws and policies that will enhance the legal rights and economic empowerment of women and girls, and direct service, including emergency, legal, and social services for survivors of gender-based violence.
FFW’s work is led by the following principles:
- The social position of women will be changed through the combined efforts of women and men but women will play decisive role in this transformation
- Their work will attend to those women who are most disadvantaged and be based on equal participation and mutual learning
- They will cooperate with governmental and non-governmental groups nationally and internationally to achieve the best results
