Mission & values
As a housewife I often wondered: is this it? My life revolved around my family, my children and doing the laundry. But I felt I was capable of more, of starting something new. The Buzz Women training helped me realize this. Next, my self-confidence grew exponentially.
We are grassroots and bottom-up. We create deep impact on a large scale. Every single day we witness how women become drivers of progress. We set the process in motion, they take the lead. Involving men and children along the way.
Buzz Women works in rural communities and is based out of India, The Gambia, Georgia and The Netherlands.
In a world where patriarchal systems still exist, many women lead lives focused on serving others. At Buzz Women we believe that impact is driven by the bottom-up approach. The women provide insights and we listen to learn so we can identify pressing problems.
Our starting point is dignity, treating every human being with respect and grace. We bring opportunity to the doorstep of women in a relevant and accessible way.
We have an unwavering belief in the power within women to transform their lives and be responsible for the growth of myself, my family and my community.
At Buzz we are dreamers and doers. We make things happen, learn from our mistakes and give our best every single day.
Our destination is lasting impact: enabling women to become future makers.
