Mission 21 sends out a message of hope for a fairer world. All across the globe, we are committed to promoting peace, improving education and healthcare, and combating poverty – especially for women; and we also carry out educational work in Switzerland. As an international institution with a long-term development cooperation programme, we are striving to attain the United Nations sustainable development goals. We are involved in over 100 projects spanning 20 countries throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America, in collaboration with more than 70 partner churches and partner organisations.
Indonesia and Malaysia
With the project "Solidarity against violence against women and children", Mission 21 is particularly committed to support migrant workers from Indonesia and Malaysia. They are often exploited or abused by their employers. The women affected hardly ever stand a chance to defend themselves against it. The work of Mission 21 and its partner organisations consists in providing protection and legal support to women and their children in such situations. The project is to be further expanded to provide assistance and protection to as many victims of violence as possible. ► More information
