focus women believes in the potential of women as forces of change. All around the world, women experience the impact of violence, discrimination and poverty to varying degrees. Women are aware of how vulnerable our planet and how fragile society is. They create new perspectives over and over again, and commit themselves to bringing about changes.

focus women supports women's organizations and networks in the global South and Eastern Europe. With them, the Foundation put into practice projects for women by women. 


We won't get rich, but we can eat and sell vegetables, send the children to school, pay for medicine or even buy some things for the household.
