WE EMPOWER WOMEN...
on their way to a self-determined and independent life!
WE PROMOTE EDUCATION...
of women and children, because education is the prerequisite for independence!
WE ENABLE UNDERSTANDING...
between cultures, because learning from each other means strengthening each other!
The ABURY Foundation was founded in 2010 as a non-profit organisation by Andrea Bury. She was inspired by her years living and working in Morocco. Fascinated by the skills and shocked by the educational and living conditions, especially of the women, she wanted to create change. The idea of the ABURY Foundation is to be an "instigator" through its social projects and to accompany women into a self-determined life.
WHAT WE DO
Everything we do is guided by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals!
In particular, Goal 5 "Gender Equality":
"Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.“
Du willst wissen, warum wir tun was wir tun? Was uns antreibt? Weil für uns diese Fakten nicht nur Tatsachen sind - wir wollen sie ändern:
In the 10 years of our existence, we have launched a large number of social projects
revolving around women's empowerment, education, job creation and preservation as well as health, and which continue to this day. Examples are our literacy programme for women, which also teaches basic IT skills, our preschool, our school sports programme, our music school, and the art project PortrAID. You can read more about these and other current projects on our blog.
WAS WIR TUN
We have big plans! We are currently working on the implementation of our (delete) two big heart projects: 1. a micro-entrepreneurship programme that supports women in rural areas of Morocco, where equality is still the exception, in implementing their own business model. 2. With our Sophie Chan project, we create a curated, global platform for women who are or want to become entrepreneurs. Here, through an intelligent algorithm, they find the organisation, mentor and accelerator programme that suits them -beyond borders. Read more about our vision projects in our blog.
We support foundations, organisations and associations from other countries that pursue similar goals to ours in raising funds in Germany. You can find detailed information and an example on our blog.
Why we do what we do? What drives us?
We enable a better future for women and create perspectives so that the current situation changes.
Two thirds of the world's illiterate are women.
Globally, only 55% of women (15-64 years) are in the labour market, compared to 78% of men. Globally, only 18% of all companies have a female top manager.
The average income of women worldwide is 11,500 per year. Men, on the other hand, earn an average of 21,500 a year.
