Social change

Two ideas for our active citizens who are not afraid of engaging critically and creatively with social issues.

One is Mama Cash – the oldest international women’s fund, established in the Netherlands in 1983. She supports pioneering and innovative women’s initiatives around the world, because she believes that social change starts with women and girls. Her vision is that every woman and girl has the power and resources to participate fully and equally in creating a peaceful, just, and sustainable world. Mama Cash mobilises resources from individuals and institutions and makes grants to women and girls’ human rights organisations and initiatives. You’re not part of a group or you still don’t have an idea? You can learn more about the problems of your country and about human rights and contribute to social change.

The other idea is Prometheus Radio Project, a non-profit organization founded by a small group of radio activists in 1998. Prometheus builds, supports, and advocates for community radio stations which empower participatory community voices and movements for social change. To that end, Prometheus demystify technologies, the political process that governs access to our media system, and the effects of media on our lives and our communities.
