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.

“Thanks to Women on Wings we focus our program to be more efficient in delivery and sustainable in action, as we scale our efforts to reach more farmers, especially training more women as beekeepers.”
