Who we are:
WeAre1 is an international registered, non-profit, non-government organisation (NGO), under the Societies Registration Act. WeAre1 is regarded as one of the most influential institutions working for women and children around the world. We have been partnering with central and state government, national and international donors, non-government organisations and local communities, to decrease the break the cycle of poverty in the world. We also strive to improve the health, nutrition, and education of women, and children.
We work with over 200 medical professionals. WeAre1 is running operations between India, Bangladesh, and Africa.
Distilling international and national experience, we seek to learn from the poor to improve our interventions in under-serviced rural and urban areas. We aim at strengthening local governance processes that give marginalised and poor communities a voice and influence national policy.We adopt a human rights-based approach in our programmes, fostering partnerships for local development among community actors, service providers, and elected representatives.
What we do:
WeAre1’s overarching aim is to enable women, and children of all ages, to take control of their lives and have a share in sustainable development. We seek to break the vicious cycle of poverty, malnutrition, ill-health, illiteracy, abuse and violence. Our initial focus on health and nutrition has grown further in the areas of education and women and children protection. Our method is to converge sectoral interventions at the level of the family and the community. We adopt a human rights-based approach in strengthening local governance actors: Rural Panchayat Institutions, Urban Local Bodies, service providers, health personnel, teachers, and community representatives, to use available resources to identify local solutions. Our programs span project development and implementation, evaluation, network building, training, and capacity development, to serve marginalized communities.
WeAre1 provides a range of services to tackle the complex issues that make it hard for women to find work. WeAre1 offers both job skills training and help with substance abuse problems such as alcohol and drug addiction.
We partner with Government and state governments around the world to make a fast and excellent impact: UN bilateral organisations, international,and national donors and networks.
