The Mangrove Foundation aims to improve environmental protection and rehabilitation and promote the empowerment of women in developing countries.
Environmental protection and rehabilitation
We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of our Earth as a suitable place for human habitation. As parents, it is our responsibility to preserve our planet’s integrity for our children and their future generations.
Our environment is undeniably changing, as evidenced by the abundance of alarming signs we receive every day. We must take action and address the various issues prudently and seriously before we face an irremediable disaster. Among the current environmental problems requiring urgent attention, we have together agreed to focus on land degradation, resources depletion, energy misuse, water accessibility and safety, and eventually climate change.
Our action is twofold: raising public awareness, but mostly supporting tangible projects by working either directly with players on the ground, or by providing support to focused projects through existing associations and other NGOs.
Gender inequality is one of the most significant hurdles to economic growth and social development. Our key focus here is on increasing economic empowerment, education levels and health and safety of women.
According to Physics Nobel laureate Henry W. Kendall, “If we don't halt population growth with justice and compassion, it will be done for us by nature, brutally and without pity - and will leave a ravaged world.”
It is demonstrated that one of the most effective solutions to overpopulation lies in empowering women, financially and socially, with a correlated impact on age of marriage and delayed fertility. We have agreed that the role of women and girls is crucial in our accomplishment. This is why either our projects target them specifically, acting on economic empowerment, education levels or health and safety, or they are directly involved in their conduct.
