...offers literacy courses for adult women who have not had the opportunity to go to school.

They learn to read, write and calculate in their own language. These courses are geared towards their professional activities, so as to have a positive impact on their income. Literate women can then more easily start a small economic activity and become more independent.

In addition, their social status and participation in community decisions are improved.

Groupe de soutien

…sets up support groups for women in psychological distress.

Young women who have suffered violence or who have had a child out of wedlock, and who have been ostracised by society, are taken care of. Together they discuss their difficulties, receive advice and rebuild their lives.

Those who wish to do so are also supported in developing small economic activities in order to earn an income and thus provide for their children.

…helps people who wish to do so to organise themselves in self-help groups.

Together, members save and lend money to each other to develop small economic projects. They also receive technical training in agriculture to improve their crops. Many women join these groups (in the DRC alone, 2,387 in 2021, i.e. 75% of members).

This allows them to become more financially independent, to develop their entrepreneurial spirit and to improve their social status.
