VISION AND MISSION STATEMENTS
Dignified and fulfilled livestyles of women, children and youth and hence communities engaging in sustainable initiatives and processes that meet their short and long term needs.
Passionately facilitate enabling environments and processes for partners and beneficiaries to see and seek their full potential in life as they engage in personal and social sustainable life and developmental lifestyles for their well being.
Women first! TAK Foundation was initiated by women. Our passion is to help women live dignified lives. Even though women at the bottom of the pyramid have not had many chances in life, they know very well what they want. That’s why the initiative needs to come from the women themselves and they need to approach us for help. This ensures ownership and sustainability of our projects, and gives the women dignity.
TAK Foundation believes in strengthening the women and youth who are key group in society for sustainable socio-economic development in the society. Capacity building is done through training in group dynamics, financial basics, saving and loans, business skills, and specific income generating activities such as animal husbandry, poultry, oil pressing, farming or craft making. The groups strengthen the social position of the women.
Imagine: You get a drug prescription but you are unable to understand it. Or your child brings home a note from school that you cannot read…. Being literate is a necessity and expands the worldview of the women we help. It also inspires them to survive in the harsh circumstances they often live in. Education is a basic foundation for progressive and sustainable societal development. To realize that TAK Foundation is committed to applying an integrated Montessori teaching approach to develop skills in children to reach their potential
Many women face violation of women rights. This ranges from abuse by family and their husbands to being sent away from the husband’s property when the husband dies. Some women are left with nothing else than the clothes they wear. Through sustainable social economic empowerment, TAK is committed to empowering women to understand their rights and responsibilities in the society.
