Empowering Girls and Women through Education
What we do
Our ambition is to advance educational opportunities for girls and women, especially in places where their access to education is hampered.
We support educational projects, that are locally anchored, so they can have a sustainable, lasting effect.
Equal access to education and vocational training helps women to find work outside of their own house und to generate their own income, to strengthen their position in society and gain more political influence.
Recent studies by the Worldbank show that both individuals and countries benefit from girls’ education. Better educated women tend to be more informed about nutrition and healthcare, have fewer children, marry at a later age, and their children are usually healthier, should they choose to become mothers. They are more likely to participate in the formal labor market and earn higher incomes all of which also has a positive impact on the environment.
Every girl and every woman, no matter where she was born, deserves to be respected und heard and has a right to go to school, to receive a formal education.
We support existing and new projects, mainly in developing and emerging countries, aiming to establish long-term cooperations.
We do not support Individuals.
Who are we?
Our family foundation was created in December 2020. We were lucky enough to be born in Switzerland and benefit from an education system that allowed us to live independently and fulfil our dreams.
It is important to us to use our fortune our experience and our networks to assist less privileged girls and women to get a chance to lead autonomous, independent lives.
Education, Literacy and Autonomy for Women
A project under the aegis of Swissaidthat strives to strengthen the social and economic position of women. Illiteracy is one of the main reasons for poverty and denies a large proportion of women in Guinea-Bissau access to the labor market and to credits and excludes them from political participation. This Swissaid project, which is run in partnership with local women's groups and is state-recognized, makes an important contribution to improving this situation.
A project under the aegis of Plan International Schweiz.
The aim of this project is to break down gender roles and improve the long-term prospects of girls and their families by motivating and promoting young women to pursue training in STEM professions (science, technology, engineering, mathematics).
Right here we plan to share experiences from our everyday life as a foundation in the future. As a young foundation, we are in a steep learning process and experience many things that we think could also be interesting for others.
