PROVIDING SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS
Our geographical focus is Mindanao, because it is home to the poorest Filipinos. Together with our partners, we implement poverty-reducing projects that enable people to rebuild their lives, livelihoods, and communities.
Our Women’s Economic Leadership (WEL) program aims to build women’s negotiating power in two inter-related aspects of their lives: in their own households and in economic markets which they engage to sell their produce and/or services. As we support women pursue livelihood opportunities we also help build their confidence in their abilities to improve their lives, and their right to be heard and valued.
