Mission 21's thematic areas
Mission 21 is committed to education and health, peacebuilding and food sovereignty in Asia, Africa and Latin America. We focus on the peaceful potential of religion as a resource to deliver quality and sustainability in development cooperation (► "Religion and development cooperation" as a pdf). We advocate good governance and gender justice in all our programmes and projects.
Good governance: In order to achieve Development Goal 16+ of the UN Agenda 2030, good governance is of particular importance. This thematic area includes strengthening our partner churches and organisations and their beneficiaries. In this context, our long-standing experience in intercultural and interreligious peacebuilding and our focus on the interaction between religion and development are of particular importance. We enable our beneficiaries to have better access to decision-making processes, support them in building local capacities and contribute overall to strengthening civil society.
All human beings should be able to lead lives that are free from discrimination, regardless of their religious affiliation, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Throughout the world, women often suffer major disadvantages. This is why support for women's rights and gender justice is an integral element of all Mission 21's projects and programmes.
