The problems are thus enormous, and there is a great deal of poverty. Being a small organization, we can only have an impact if we work together with the people to promote prevention, education and practical solutions.

1. First, we listen closely to the people so that we understand the problems and their causes. We then discuss with each other what we can do and coordinate with the national and local authorities.

2. We empower the people to deal with the causes of their problems: Many illnesses can be prevented through more knowledge and appropriate behavior.

3. We provide access to effective solutions that work for them: Water filter installations, washable and biodegradable sanitary pads for girls and women, and a book about puberty and menstruation for all schoolgirls between the age of 10 and 14.
