Support so far:

August 2025

8.280,- €
10/20 professional training courses at €828 each
Women and young people in particular are affected by unemployment in Nepal. Fixed role models prevent young women from accessing vocational trainings. In addition, early marriage, housework and childcare hinder their chances of earning their own income. This project focuses primarily on young people from particularly disadvantaged population groups. A total of 550 young women and men between the ages of 18 and 24 are to receive training towards a career in employment or self-employment. Our goal in this project:
We finance 20 professional training courses at 828 euros each for young women, a total of 16,560 euros. Learn more!

» New Project in Malawi: Education makes girls strong!

Project until:
Support so far:

September 2026

9.504,- €
22/40 one-year scholarships of €432 each
We have worked in Malawi before. But many young girls still have difficulties accessing education. The graduation rate for girls in secondary school is only 21 percent. 42% of the girls still get merried before the age of 18. That's why we want to support this project with its very broad approach. Young people at risk of poverty receive scholarships, their school fees are covered, they receive school uniforms and they are also provided with a bicycle if they have a particularly long journey to school. In addition, mentoring programs and special trainings are carried out, hygiene materials are distributed, participation in savings groups is made possible for the affected families, the communities and local authorities are involved and much more. Our goal in this project: We finance 40 one-year scholarships for girls worth 432 euros, a total of 17,290 euros. Learn more!

In addition to the specific problem of Kamalari girls in the west of the country (see Kamalari project), there are general problems for the youth in Nepal. Every day 1,500 young people migrate abroad. Reasons are severely limited job and training opportunities, low wages and poor working conditions in the country. For young women it is particularly difficult to get good education and a job. With this Plan project, 460 young women are to receive trainings adapted to the domestic labor market and in addition to receive a secure job with adequate salary and acceptable working conditions. We have increased our target again: We want to finance the vocational training for 100 of these 460 young women. Each training will cost 371, - Euro. Learn more!

This project is fully funded but not yet completed.

13 education packages for girls á 622,- € financed.
We were engaged in Zimbabwe before. But in this country there is still a need to avoid early marriage of girls. Unfortunately, Corona crisis has exacerbated the problem. More girls are now dropping out of school and getting married, so an additional set of measures was needed to counteract this negative development. We chose two of the various measures and formed them as an "educational package": We want 35 girls to receive vocational training of 177 euros each and 35 girls to receive school fees, school uniforms, school materials (books, writing materials, school backpack, etc.) for three Finance each year in the amount of 445 euros. So our "educational package" for a girl costs 622 euros. Learn more!
