There are many ways to help improve the lives of marginalized people in developing countries!
New Yardsticks® envisions a world in which marginalized women take action themselves to improve their lives and their children’s lives. For a sustainable future, having a livelihood is necessary but not enough. Other basic needs such as access to clean water, proper sanitation and basic health care, also need to be met. New Yardsticks® looks at the back story of unmet social needs and acts holistically to contribute to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) conceived by the United Nations
New Yardsticks® strives to enable small-scale effects broaden out into sweeping long-term changes. This is done by forming a bridge between the Netherlands where resources are plentiful and India where these resources can be put to great use in empowering marginalized women and children.
