Maison Shalom - Burundi
Maison Shalom was founded in 1993 by Marguerite (Maggi) Barankitse, in response to the aftermath of the civil war. WIN has helped providing a more sustainable living environment for the children and volunteers of the community. In 2013 WIN raised €6,000 to buy 20 cows for 20 families. The animals were allocated to fostering families with an average of 8 members. In 2016 Maggi Baranktse was named as the inaugural laureate of the $1 million Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity.
WIN Girls, India
The WIN Girls Project awards scholarships to deserving students to allow them to benefit from higher education for a minimum period of 3 years. During this period, girls are provided with college fees and small stipend each month for books and study materials. Each scholarship holder undertakes to reach out to at least 10 other girls every year and encourage them to understand the benefits of study, not getting married too young, and helping others in society. A donation of just €350 to the WIN Fund will enable one Indian girl to receive higher education.
