Home > Causes > Economic Security

“Economic security” means having enough income to meet basic needs and enough reserves to maintain or restore sustainable livelihoods.

Women and children throughout Africa are often void of the building blocks of economic security due to hardships, circumstance and social standing.

The Asomugha Foundation’s work to promote economic security aims to ensure that woman and children can meet their essential needs. The Foundation’s activities range from distribution of food and essential household and personal care items to micro-economic initiatives.

Our micro-economic initiatives aim to strengthen income generation in both households and entire communities in a sustainable manner and in a given time frame. The projects are tailored to meet individual needs, as expressed by the recipients. The most commonly used micro-economic tools are productive grants, vocational training and small loans.
