Every year, we give a percentage of our revenues to selected organizations.
The key objectives of our contributions are to support education or healthcare for people who have limited access and to help women to live a self-confident and dignified life. The projects supported by us include the following:
… for the advancement of education, the preservation of the Tibetan culture and support of institutions and projects in the interest of the Tibetan exile society in Nepal. The project supports the Manjughoksha Academy which meanwhile educates around 400 children between 3 and 17 years of age.
Specifically, we are supporting the regular medical attendance and all medicines for all children whose parents cannot afford those (see pictures). Depending on the available funds, we also funded a daily fruit supply to the children at school (an apple a day ….) and rebuilding measures after the earthquake.
Terres des hommes Schweiz operates in 11 countries worldwide and has more than 50 projects. All projects carried out in Latin America or Africa have one thing in common: the primary target group are young people. The reason is simple: 1.8 billion people are in the age between 10 and 24 and their advancement is crucial for today’s global challenges.
Specifically in 2019, we have supported actions in Nicaragua and in South Africa:
Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in the world. Youth and child labour is very widespread, and where there is child labour, there is always exploitation. The projects include activities to strengthen and protect working children or to help children to get out of the spiral of poverty (more information)
Even 25 years after the end of apartheid, living conditions in the rural areas of South Africa are still extremely difficult. This project aims to develop talents of young people in the province of KwaZulu-Natal and gives them the courage to take an active part in society. (more information)
Terre des Femmes Switzerland (www.terre-des-femmes.ch)
… a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that fights against the abuse of women’s and girls’ human rights. It is committed to an autonomous, independent life for all women and girls, irrespective of their denomination, political and ethnic affiliation and nationality or sexual orientation. To this end, TERRE DES FEMMES Switzerland draws up prevention measures and measures to raise awareness on the issues of sexism, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, honour-based violence and women refugees. Its objective is to achieve gender relations that are marked by equality and partnership, free of physical, psychological or sexual discrimination.
