“Being a member of the Women’s Groups has given us bonding, purpose in life and provided access to financial assistance.”
Words like these bring home the importance of Assisi’s work with women, children and communities.
This year, with the help of our generous donors and partners, Assisi supported over 6,000 people in India and Cambodia. This included 1,243 children accessing education, 1,388 community members trained on gender equality and human rights, and 1,131 women and men with increased access to financial services.
We developed a new Strategic Plan this year. Building on our past work, it puts gender equality at the forefront of all we do and sets a vision for a world in which all people have equal opportunity to determine and achieve their economic and social potential.
We evaluated our projects in India and Cambodia The evaluations pointed to the effectiveness and results of our projects, while also outlining recommendations to strengthen what we do. We are now working with our partners and the communities to put these recommendations in place.
