International Women's Day

Celebrating Women Near and Far

ShelterBox is a truly worldwide organization.

The women we meet and work with inspire us everyday. They #PressforProgress by being leaders in their communities.

At ShelterBox, we support the International Women’s Day call to #PressforProgress, because we also strive to think, act and be gender inclusive.

Please meet some of the remarkable women who inspire us at ShelterBox.


‘Every day I come to the camp and help people with their cleanliness and hygiene’


'The amazing strength and resilience of the families I have met on deployment is what inspires me to do my best every day'


‘I know how to repair my house myself, I am planning to repair the roof in the other rooms as well’


‘I had left instructions to the hotel to be left open, so people could come here if they needed to’


'I was deployed to Bangladesh in response to flooding'
