|It is a fact that there are more women than men among the beneficiaries of Limmat Foundation projects.
The most general reason for this is certainly that women have shown themselves to be catalysts for the development of their countries, not only in developing countries, but in the industrial world as well. If a woman can read and write, the likelihood that her children will also be literate is very high. The second reason for this promotion of women is the fact that in developing countries, men are often given preference when it comes to education. Since in these countries it is most often the case that there is not enough money to extend education to women and girls, they are left without any kind of vocational training. And third, in the case of projects aimed at developing income sources, women will share their income with the whole family, which is not necessarily the case with a salary earned by a man.
