We want all people to be able to live free, in dignity and equal in their civil rights. We want to help overcome hunger, poverty, ignorance and inequality. That is why equality between men and women and gender equality are the focus of our work along with the support of women and their empowerment. The cooperation with women’s groups and organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America includes projects for the professional qualification of women in agriculture and trades, services and production. There is often investment aid or microcredits given, in order to afford the women a successful start into their chosen occupation. Many women work as small-scale entrepreneurs or work together with other women in small groups or cooperatives. They want to live on what they earn and be capable of giving their children a better education, improved nourishment and the possibility of health care.
Our cooperation is a partnership where our partners decide which path to chose. These women’s groups/associations and the trainers decide together with the members of an association what the focus of the project will be. Before starting a project they need to find out what the income possibilities of the different activities can be. To help is our principle in every project. We are comitted to ending inequality, fostering equity and justness, gender equality and sustainable development.
