Terre des femmes: STOP violence against girls and women
Terre des Femmes campaigns for the rights of women and girls worldwide. Terre des Femmes addresses this violence due to their gender, provides information about human rights violations and calls for equality of both genders.
With our donation, useful flyers can be distributed to female migrants and refugees. Often this group of females is particularly exposed to violence and there is no one they can turn to. These flyers can educate them about their rights and can help them to get connected to Terre des Femmes.

World University Service: Save lives with PAUL, the WaterBackpack – potable water all over the world
It is very sad that many people in various parts of our world still lack drinking water.
PAUL allows people in remote areas without clean drinking water to filter water independently. The explanation of how to use PAUL is made on the basis of pictograms, which means that PAUL can also be used by illiterate people. Since it works like an ultra-fine filter, it can hold back both bacteria and viruses and does not require any further energy.
We have donated to the production of one PAUL, which means that around 200-300 people can be supplied with clean drinking water every day for up to 10 years.
You can find more information about PAUL here: http://waterbackpack.org/.
