Our mission is a decent existence for everyone.
We empower people and enable them to
improve their own lives.
Where are we doing this?
Three continents, fourteen countries, 250 projects.
It is about powerful people who stand up for their rights,
shake hands with the enemy or come to terms with their traumas.

Violence against women is a widespread problem in Bolivia. Seven in ten women are a victim of violence. We support an initiative called ‘Somos Sur’ that informs women through radio programmes and blogs about prevention of violence and seeking help if they are victimized.
