Achmea Foundation

Achmea Foundation

Funding partner since April 2016

Self-reliance, solidarity and cooperation: the Achmea Foundation regards these concepts as key values rooted in Achmea’s history as a cooperative. The Achmea Foundation initiates and supports projects that help to permanently improve the lives of people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The Achmea Foundation collaborates with organizations that strive towards financial independence, like social entrepreneurs.
The projects must be related to issues that are in line with Achmea’s tradition: financial services (specifically micro-insurance), healthcare and agriculture.

Women on Wings and Achmea Foundation join hands in a program that aims to co-create extra jobs in the food & agri sector in India. In addition to providing funds, Achmea Foundation also shares the knowledge, experience and expertise of selected Achmea employees.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
