EVERYONE INCLUDED. OR NOT?

Do you have any idea how it feels to be sentenced to a hopeless and isolated existence... simply because you are young, or a woman or indigenous? About these practices Trias says: no pasarán.

Step 1: We strengthen associations

Strong associations are a fantastic lever for the self-development of their members. Take Clac, this is an organisation that unites 300,000 farmers' families in Latin America. By supporting this organisation we can fulfil many dreams in one go.

Step 2: Women strengthen women

Organisations such as Clac create a space in El Salvador where women are able to meet each other. Where they can learn from each other and exchange ideas. In fact, we organise workshops in which also representatives of women's organisations in other countries – from Flanders as well – participate.

Step 3: We are not afraid of giving youngsters opportunities

We convince Clac to give youngsters real opportunities. Kevin is a case in point. He works at the secretariat of the Los Pinos co-operative. Together with young people such as Kevin we put innovative ideas into business plans.

Thanks to your support less people are on the sidelines!
