The International Women Seafarers Foundation has been conceived with the intention of promoting and supporting women seafarers in their shipping career. A woman is faced with numerous challenges in their pursuit of a sailing career. Young girls, often when faced with unexpected challenges, find it difficult to take right steps at right time, leading to complications for themselves and companies employing them.
