Why we do what we do

The vastness of our community and the cultural connotations makes it difficult to reach the victims in their rural villages in times of need. The Foundation employs a voluntary “trumpet call” to the community to engage fully in decision making and in the process of development to abandon these retrogressive cultural practices that serve to disenfranchise women from actively participating in community activities while at the same time achieving their life dreams

Area of focus

Female genital mutilation (FGM)

Child/forced marriages


Sexual Assault

women’s and girl’s empowerment



“I am responsible”

Most society disputes are because we are not all responsible. Taking into account that we are all part of the society, if we all change our way of thinking, being, acting and investing our money, our society model will change for good.Personal Social Responsibility is the way we as individuals perform our daily life as members of the society–basing our decisions on a desire to minimize the negative impacts and maximize the positive impacts on the social, environmental and economic in the long run. This range of personal behavior, directly and indirectly shows the economic, legal, ethical, discretionary and environmental actions derived from the individual’s role in the society, the environment and the world as a whole. Challenges occur when community members overlook the impact of their actions on others as well as themselves in the long run

We have achieved so much with the help of our partners
