Where we work

We Effect is a global organisation that is fighting poverty in 24 different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
