We Effect’s work in Europe is dedicated to assisting countries in their transition to the EU by enhancing the capacity of civil society organizations and empowering their members. Addressing political instability is among the key challenges we face, and we believe that knowledge and rights are crucial for charting a path forward.

Gender equality  

Across the region, women, and youth face significant disparities in terms of employment, access to resources, power, and voice. At We Effect, we actively promote and support gender equality in the Europe region, focusing on sustainable rural development. We firmly believe that achieving equality between women and men is crucial for attaining sustainable development on a global scale.

Rural development

In order to facilitate the integration and equitable participation of farmers in the European market, We Effect, and our partners are committed to empowering them. Our aim is to enhance their societal influence, boost their income, and equip them with the necessary technical and entrepreneurial skills. Additionally, we strive to raise awareness among farmers about environmental concerns and promote sustainable practices. By providing farmers with these resources and support, we endeavour to enable them to thrive in the European market..

Social inclusion and democracy

At We Effect, we strive to foster social inclusion through reconciliation. Our organization also extends support to minority rights, enhancing knowledge and capabilities, while facilitating collaboration across a range of social and business initiatives. We firmly believe in the power of cooperation to promote social cohesion and create opportunities for all individuals and communities.

Europe programme

The We Effect Europe programme (2023-2027) is a multi-country programme, primarily focusing on sustainable rural development. The main emphasis is on national structures but also includes elements of regional processes, synergies, and structures.

The strategic focus areas of the programme are organisation development, gender equality and human rights, resilience, food security, sustainable livelihoods, business development as well as the inclusion of minority and other vulnerable groups and reconciliation in countries affected by inter-ethnic/religious conflicts.

The programme functions as a platform to promote sustainable dialogue and regional cooperation.

We Effect also works through different national projects.

Partnership approach

In Europe, We Effect collaborates with local partner organisations – which are member-based and represent the voice of the smallholder farmers and other vulnerable groups.

Jointly we advocate and work for economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable agriculture and rural development with a gender perspective.

Alliances and networks

As a development organization, our mission is to create lasting impact and drive positive change in the communities we serve. Recognizing the power of collaboration, we are dedicated to building alliances and networks that bring together diverse stakeholders, including local organizations, businesses, and community members.

By fostering these partnerships, we aim to leverage collective knowledge, resources, and expertise to address complex social, economic, and environmental challenges. Our organization believes that through collaborative efforts, we can amplify our impact, develop innovative solutions, and promote sustainable development.
