Empow'Her is an international network of social ventures that works towards women's empowerment. Convinced that entrepreneurship is a powerful lever for emancipation, our mission is to implement support and education programs to help women build up their decision making and entrepreneurship capabilities, enable them to invest and to be recognized for their crucial role in the economy, and contribute to the spread of new inclusive and empowering narratives. By doing so, we believe we are empowering women to take control of their lives, decide on their own future and develop sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their communities.

Powerful women, healthy societies. We believe that strong women benefit the whole community. Therefore we strive to encourage women and girls to claim their right to equality and basic needs. Empowered women and girls don't just improve their own situation but also that of those around them. For nearly a century, Simavi has been working for a healthy and equal world in regions where this is far from self-evident. Nowadays, we have partners in 10 African and Asian countries. Developments like Covid-19 and climate change will mainly affect women and impact gender equality and the fulfilment of women's rights. That's why it's important to invest in women and girls now. Many factors define status and the ability to pursue human rights. Gender is one aspect, but so is race, class, religion, age, health status, sexual preference and identity. Because all of these factors contribute to our daily life, we look at the system as a whole.

We engage people and partners to: *Empower children, young people and communities to make vital changes that tackle the root causes of discrimination against girls, exclusion and vulnerability. *Drive change in practice and policy at local, national and global levels through our reach, experience and knowledge of the realities children face. *Work with children and communities to prepare for and respond to crises and to overcome adversity. *Support the safe and successful progression of children from birth to adulthood.
Our efforts express the compassion and solidarity forming the core beliefs of Christianity, as expressed in the following verse from the New Testament: 'Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' Matthew (25,40) Our assistance provides humanitarian relief, including immediate aid after natural disasters, as well as sustainable development work helping people to build capacities on a lasting basis. One further aim is putting an end to the violations of threats to human rights and especially including the right to pursue religious or other spiritual beliefs. To accomplish our aims, Sign of Hope implements programmes and projects directly and also provides possible benefit to local people. For the latter, we often forge partnerships with groups comprised of the communities or other organisations working closely with the beneficiaries. Such partnerships ensure that our resources and efforts are employed in the most effective and efficient ways - at the individual, grassroots level. This, in turn, requires our remaining neutral.
