CARE tackles the underlying causes of poverty and social injustice to deliver lasting changes in the lives of poor and vulnerable people. CARE Luxembourg’s project is called PARESAN and its overall goals are to strengthen food and nutritional security in the Wadi-Fira province in Chad, thus reinforcing the livelihoods of vulnerable households, starting with women and girls as they are often marginalised. The aim is to support women to acquire a strong level of financial self-determination and independence via an established financial inclusion mechanism.

In 2013, the non-profit, working in Rwanda, set up a sewing workshop for young mothers who have dropped out of school, thus giving them a chance to receive professional training. About twenty girls aged 13 to 18 are helped each year and receive a yearlong sewing training. This enables them to earn a salary and support themselves and their babies.

Friendship Luxembourg

Environmental protection category winner with employees:

The non-profit works to preserve mangroves in Bangladesh. This country is highly vulnerable to floods, tropical storms and cyclones, which are becoming more frequent and intense as a result of global warming, and many of its mangroves have disappeared over the past decades. But mangroves play an essential role in coastal regions. The Friendship project aims to restore these mangroves in an area of nine hectares by replanting various species of trees and raising awareness among the local population about the protection of these mangroves.

Association Luxembourg-Roumanie ASBL

Environmental protection category winner with volunteers:

The aim of this non-profit is to maintain relations between the two countries. For this project, the association is helping a small family company of beekeepers who have been fighting for four generations to save the honey bees, which are facing extinction. They will plant an orchard of fruit trees and build a mobile container with hives. The hives will regularly be transported from one orchard to another to preserve traditional pastoral beekeeping. A wide variety of fruit trees like apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees, plum trees will also be planted in September-October. A plot of land will be bought to allow for the wintering of bees.
