There are various ways to helping improve the lives of marginalized people in developing countries!
New Yardsticks® envisions: active participation of marginalized women in improving their own and their children’s lives. Not only financial gains are required for a sustainable future but other basic needs too such as access to clean water, proper sanitation and basic health care. New Yardsticks® also looks at the back story of unmet social needs and thus participates actively to support the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) in an holistic manner. These MDG’s, conceived by the United Nations, form the basis of the streamline of thoughts that New Yardsticks® underlines.
New Yardstick’s® mission is to enable small-scale effects to broaden out in sweeping long-term changes. This is done by forming a bridge between the Netherlands where resources are plentiful and India where capacity building & skill and education requirements are manifold.
