We Effect supports local farmer organizations, cooperatives and other organizations to improve the quality of services they offer to members; a focus on technical and administrative skills and education develops farmer capacity allowing them to improve their food security and resilience.

Support also goes to housing cooperatives whose members adopt a model which allows them to build and own new houses collectively. We Effect also supports work for increased gender equality in cooperatives and other organizations by, for example, developing gender equality policies; women receiving rights based training and changes to statutes allow for increased representation in executive boards. In Bolivia, We Effect works on the principle of fair resource allocation, ensuring that at least half of our aid targets women.
