Lasting results require a long-term approach
For far too long the world has tried to lift up others by only providing resources, but resources only go so far. At Cuso International, we believe in the long-term. Long-term partnerships. Long-term programs. Long-term results. We work on today's most important development issues by connecting global communities in need with the skills they need to create lasting change. And we've been doing this for close to 60 years. How? Through education, empowerment and skills sharing, we are equipping people with the tools to create local economic opportunity, gender equality and better health.
With your support, change happens
Honduran women find their place in fishing industry
The COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of natural disasters have made accessing healthy food sources more challenging for many vulnerable populations in Honduras. To offset these obstacles, Cuso’s partner, Centro de Estudios Marinos, is teaching women how to fish, while promoting sustainable and responsible fishing practices.
Growing better livelihoods for women and youth in Tanzania
For Jolenta Joseph and Fatuma Mbaga, running their own agribusinesses is about more than just the crops they grow and the foods they produce – although their products are critical in Tanzania. It’s also about creating better lives, for themselves and for the many women and youth they employ and plan to employ in the future.
