    "Thanks to education, we determine our own future"

    In the September issue we tell the story of Popi. Together with our partner organisations, the young Indonesian woman managed to avoid marriage at the age of 15 and instead continued to go to school.  More information about our campaign on education helps to put the story into context. Also in this issue: 
    - How the war in Ukraine is exacerbating the precarious food situation in many places and what we can do about it. 
    - Everyday life of midwives in Switzerland and South Sudan.
    - Black Voices from the Archives: Why testimonies of black people in the archives have been read so little so far.

    Mission Press Cooperative

    Mission 21 works together with five other mission organisations in Germany and Austria. Together we form the Mission Press Cooperative (Kooperation Missionspresse). All the magazines of these mission organisations - including "begegnen" - are accessible online in an app, a digital magazine kiosk. In the magazine "Eine Welt" you will find articles on the topic of mission and ecumenism, which have previously also appeared in our magazine "Auftrag". In future, however, you will also find selected articles from this cooperation online on our website in the "News" section.
