PfC has projects in Myanmar and Ethiopia. The projects are mainly aimed at girls and women with the goal of getting the tools and opportunities they need to become financially independent. Our projects are locally rooted and based on mutual binding partnerships with nonprofit organizations, government and business. Read more about our focus and program in each country:
Myanmar has significant challenges to ensure stability and economic progress after decades under the military regime. To contribute to development PfC works here with education and training, has its own entrepreneurship programs and contributes with establishment support. In Myanmar we have a particular focus on projects related to tourism as a growth industry, as well as on the development of local communities.
Women are a marginalized and vulnerable group in Ethiopia. A key reason is that they have not been part of the country’s workforce, and thus do not achieve social and economic independence. PfC’s projects are designed to strengthen women’s opportunities. In collaboration with our partners, we give women access to relevant vocational training, we contribute to job creation by investing in businesses and we have specially designed programs for women entrepreneurs and young girls.
