Rose Charities Celebrates International Women’s Day !
Rose Charities has many projects aimed specifically at women. Often women are the most overlooked group when it comes to international aid projects, but we feel that any project aimed at women has a far reaching effect throughout the community. From women’s support groups to vocational training, we have projects across the globe helping improve the lives of women.
Sri Lanka: We support Young Women’s Clubs in 8 villages, Girl’s sports programs, a Women’s University Scholarship Program, Women’s Livelihood Groups (Women’s Support and Women’s Vocational Training).

Their magnificent work has helped tens of thousands of victims in many parts of the globe.
