The Korea Foundation for Women (KFW) was established in December 1999 as the   first independent non-profit women’s foundation in Korea by the initiative   and firm commitment of 124 women’s groups and leaders of the Korean society   to realize “A New Millennium for Our Daughters.”

We empower women and increase women’s contributions to our society, with an aim   to achieve gender equality in all sectors and foster an environment where   both women and men live in equal dignity and harmony. To this end, the KFW   provides various supports to enhance the quality of lives of women in our society.
