Our Areas of Focus
Healing of People and Planet: The cry of the poor and the cry of the Earth go hand in hand. Mega migration, growing numbers of refugees and homeless, increasing violence, etc., are the result of lack of respect for the community of life. It is the sick, the vulnerable and marginalized sections of the society who have less access to health care and resources, who suffer the most. This also includes the indigenous peoples, victims of caste and race, trafficked, etc.
Healing of the unjust socio-economic system: the current model of development only increases inequality and widen the gap between the rich and the poor within countries and among countries. Advocacy and lobbying for a just economic system that works for all within the planetary boundary is crucial to combat climate crisis and other social issues affecting the poor and the marginalized.
Generation Equality: escalating violence against women, girls and children calls our attention for creation of generation equality to protect the rights of women and respect all generations.
