ONE WORLD where poverty is eliminated, equality prevails and the rights of women and girls are fulfilled


Crossroads International, a leader in international cooperation, has been fighting inequality for more than 60 years. We do this by bringing people together for a common cause, to create lasting solutions to overcome poverty and advance women’s rights. Crossroads works in some of the world’s poorest nations in Southern Africa, West Africa and South America.  We work with local partner organizations to create decent jobs and to empower women to become leaders and live free from violence.  Every year, we engage hundreds of experienced volunteers and staff North and South who apply their expertise locally to address global issues.  We invest in local partners who are best positioned to meet the needs of their communities.  With local partners, we develop co-operatives and collective enterprises that generate income and advance the autonomy of youth, women and the rural poor. We pilot innovative approaches to reducing violence against women and girls and advancing women’s rights. Together we are leveraging knowledge, expertise and dollars to create a more just and equitable world. 

Crossroads is a registered charity, supported by Global Affairs Canada, other government and non-government funders, and many individual donors around the world.
