For many of us, a job is more than just a way to earn an income. Work provides purpose and shapes who you are. It’s where you invest most of your time. And it’s where you can best utilize your talents, skills and abilities.
But decent work still isn’t a guarantee for many people. Millions around the globe struggle to find decent work let alone work that provides enough income to get by. Many resort to taking on dangerous jobs – jobs which take a toll on physical and mental health and which, too often, offer few benefits and provide barely enough money to cover necessities.
By investing in decent work, we can make a difference for people in the Global South – partnering with them to create opportunities for individuals, families, and entire communities.
With your support, we can transform agri-food markets in the global south, building sustainable systems that support entrepreneurs long after MEDA’s projects close.
Your gift ensures that small business owners and farm entrepreneurs have what they need to not just survive, but to find decent work, thrive in business, and uplift their communities. Please give today.
