What we do
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.
We Effect targets women in partner organisations to secure them the same rights and entitlements as men, especially to own and control land and access to financial resources.
The rights perspective is central in our activities. We constantly seek to strengthen our own and our partners’ ability to apply a rights based approach.
We Effect supports cooperatives and farmer organisations that are pressing for the right to land for small-scale farmers and indigenous peoples.
Financial services designed for women and men with limited resources is an important tool in all We Effect’s areas of work.
We Effect has defined three topics where the organisation will develop its own advocacy positions and activities. The topics are gender equality, the right to land and cooperative development.
