With our worldwide projects we enable women to lead a self-determined life!
From a global perspective, equality cannot be taken for granted. According to the "Global Gender Gap Report 2020" (World Economic Forum), this will only be the case in 99.5 years. In some parts of the world, women are still denied the freedom to decide how they want to live. They are denied basic rights such as education, paid employment outside the home or starting a business, owning property, seeing a doctor, driving a car, choosing a husband, using contraceptives, getting divorced and much more. We help these women by strengthening their position so that they can live self-determined lives.
Holistic education is the basis for a self-determined life. In addition to a classical school education and vocational training, it is also necessary to learn so-called soft skills such as assertiveness, risk-taking, perseverance and social competence 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 go their own way by accompanying them from the idea to their own business and by equipping them with everything they need. We provide them with access to holistic education, women's networks and platforms where they can present their special talents.
Our motto is MITEINANDER | 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 at eye level. We integrate people into our global network who can learn from each other and help each other - regardless of skin colour, gender, religion, age, education or income.
"Economic inequality around the world is still extreme. We know through many studies that an economy run by diverse teams is more efficient and socially and environmentally sustainable. Women's empowerment in this context is not just a gender issue, this is about the preservation of our planet."
"What I have seen and learned in all my many international travels is the importance of women's education and empowerment. That's why I'm very happy to join the ABURY Foundation and work on concrete projects that help women lead self-determined lives."
"Growing up with a single and full-time working mother has shaped my life. Therefore, with this wonderful role model, living a self-determined life came naturally to me. I am very happy to be able to use my energy at the ABURY Foundation to make a contribution to women on their way to professional independence."
We love handmade things with beautiful designs that look good, feel good and do good. We believe that beauty is in the details and stand for quality over quantity. Each piece in the ABURY Collection is carefully designed and handmade. The result is unique and timeless treasures from cultural traditions of other countries. We put people first, which is why we ensure fair working conditions and salaries, and reinvest 50 per cent of profits in social projects in the communities we work with through the ABURY Foundation. All manufacturing processes are transparent and we promote sustainable production. www.abury.net
