To fulfil our vision of making ‘the world a place without hunger, where people live together in harmony’, we promote not only social empowerment but also economic empowerment.
People can only begin to think about the future when they are free from focusing on their everyday survival.
We know that poverty is not caused solely by the laziness and incompetence of the individual. Socio-economic factors, such as structural inequality, lack of social safety nets and collapsing markets are also contributing factors that create a vicious cycle of poverty.
Our initiatives break this cycle.
Since the start of our international development activities, we have made it our objective to work towards promoting self-reliance and sustainability, not just on providing aid.
To develop self-reliance among poor communities, we support income generation activities throughout the world promoting economic independence through income-generation groups, cooperatives, and social enterprises.
