Donations instead of gifts
Promoting Organic Agriculture
In Malawi and in Cambodia we support projects in which smallholder farmers learn how to improve their livelihood through organic farming. With simple and locally available means these families can change their nutritional situation through diversification so that they are less dependent on expensive seeds and pesticides. Organic farming protects the environment and helps farmers adapt to the climate change.
In Cambodia, Peru, Nicaragua and Costa Rica we support educational and social projects for children and young people who live in precarious social circumstances. Education and meaningful leisure activities open up new prospects of the future for the young people and promote their self-confidence, initiative and independence. The projects enable them to break out of the vicious circle of poverty and they also strengthen indigenous children and young people who suffer from discrimination.
In India, Peru and Greece we support projects to strengthen and educate women suffering from poverty and violence. In many development projects women are the most active, because they care about feeding their children and improving the living situation of their families. Generally, however, women’s rights do not correspond to their duties. This often leads to enormous double burdens. To promote development, women must be made to understand their situation and empowered to change it.
We use non-specific donations where the money is most urgently needed.
