Funding partner from 2016 to 2019
Self-reliance, solidarity and cooperation: the Achmea Foundation regards these concepts as key values rooted in Achmea’s history as 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 joined hands in a three years’ program that aimed to co-create extra jobs in the food & agri sector in India. In addition to providing funds, Achmea Foundation also shared the knowledge, experience and expertise of selected Achmea employees.
The three years’ program was successfully concluded in 2019.
