Support Zambian women farmers this Valentines day – or Friend’s day as we call it in Finland

Valentine’s Day – or Friends’ Day as we call it in Finland – is coming soon and it is time to do good things for friends both near and far! In our Valentine’s Day campaign we support female farmers in Zambia and raise awareness on gender equality in their home villages. 

Our work supports women in many ways: we improve women’s situation by decreasing their workload at home and supporting climate-resilient livelihoods. We also provide support and counseling for women who are victims of gender-based violence. Gender-based violence is a challenging issue to remove but it is not an impossible task. We organize trainings on gender-based violence sensitization in the communities and provide concrete help for the victims of violence at drop-in centers. Would you like to support us this Friend’s Day? 

 

Examples of donation options:

 

10 €: participation of one person in a training to recognize and combat gender-based violence 

40 €: councellor for one month in the drop-in center to help the victims of gender-based violence
