Our support to local organisations in Philippines is gathered in the programme “Working TOGETHER” –  working towards Gender Equality, Transformative Housing, and Empowerment of the Ruralfolk.

Gender Equality is the overarching goal and underlying principle of the programme. The main objective of the programme is to establish a strong movement of member-based organizations working together towards the fulfillment of basic human rights for women empowerment, sustainable rural development, and adequate housing.

Supporting typhoon affected families, like the Bernal’s, to live in strong homes, is a part of We Effect’s work in the Philippines.

The five-year programme aims to directly benefit 42,900 people, coming from 86 member-based organizations. Around 25 740, or 60 percent, are women.
