THEMATIC CORE AREAS
Sustainable rural development

Sustainable rural development is We Effect’s largest thematic working area. We Effect supports smallholder farmers and their organisations. Our support is integral and includes organisational, business and production development.

Adequate housing and habitat

We Effect supports the growth of cooperative housing associations that are self-managed. We support organisations that defend and demand people’s right to adequate housing.

OUR WORLD
EASTERN AFRICA

Our work in Eastern Africa is focused on strengthening the capacity of smallholder farmers, with emphasis on women, helping them to form and grow their own profitable organisations. We also support housing cooperatives and advocate for women’s right to land.

SOUTHERN AFRICA

Our work in Southern Africa is focused on strengthening smallholder farmers, with emphasis on women, in sustainable farming methods, adaptation to climate change, and food security. Together with our partner organisations we are also working to secure the right to land and adequate housing.

LATIN AMERICA

We Effect’s work in Latin America is focused on strengthening the capacity of organisations that work with smallholder farmers and housing cooperatives. Our work emphasises gender equality and women’s empowerment and we support advocacy for equal rights to power, land, housing and food security.

ASIA

In Asia, We Effect are supporting smallholder farmers and member based organisations to work together, battle poverty, climate change, and inequalities. We emphasise empowering women, knowing that is key to bringing an end to poverty. We also support housing cooperatives, because every family has the right to a decent and safe home.

EUROPE

Our work in Europe is focused on strengthening the capacity of smallholder farmers, in order for them to improve their position on the market. We also focus on organisational structure, gender equality and reducing discrimination of ethnic groups, such as the Roma community.

STORIES

"Moving to our new house helped me leave those bad memories behind"

The housing situation in Eastern Africa is alarming, where 6 out of 10 of the urban population live in informal settlements. Hamidah Nantume used to be one of them.

A first step toward integration

In Albania, children living in poverty are offered a trouble-free zone, away from the turbulence and turmoil of everyday life. The project is a collaboration between We Effect and Världens barn.
