Mission: Our mission can be summarized in 3 points:
2.1 EMPOWERING WOMEN
Globally, equality is not a matter of course. According to the “Global Gender Gap Report 2021” (World Economic Forum), this will only be the case in 135.6 years. Because in some parts of the world, women are still denied the freedom to choose how they want to live. They are denied basic rights such as education, working outside the home or starting a business, owning property, seeing a doctor, driving a car, choosing a husband, using contraception, divorce and more. Our goal is to help these women by empowering them to live independently.
2.2 PROMOTE EDUCATION
Holistic education is the basis for a self-determined life. In addition to classic school education and vocational training, learning so-called soft skills such as assertiveness, willingness to take risks, perseverance and social skills is necessary in order to be professionally successful. Due to traditional role models, many women lack the self-confidence to live financially independently. We help women to find their way by accompanying them from the idea to their own business and providing them with everything they need. We give you access to holistic education, women's networks and platforms on which you can present your special talents.
2.3 ENABLING UNDERSTANDING
Our motto is TOGETHER. We firmly believe that we can only solve problems together. That is why we are committed to the exchange between different cultures and create environments and opportunities for discourse on an equal footing. We integrate people into our global network who can learn from each other and help each other - regardless of skin color, gender, religion, age, education or income.
