• Contribute to a world without poverty through education

Dispurse Foundation

Education against poverty

Dispurse Foundation is a Swedish organization whose purpose is to fight poverty through education

Our contribution to the fight against poverty consists of a digital literacy education, adapted for women in rural areas who for various reasons have not had the opportunity to go to school. We also work to create opportunities for further education for these women based on their interests and needs as well as to create space for dialogue and increased access to text in the current society.

In Peru, over 9 million people have not had the opportunity to complete primary school and almost 1.5 million have never had the opportunity to learn to read, write and count.

A human right

At Dispurse, we are convinced that being able to read, write and count not only is a human right but also the key to being able to live an independent life.

Our work

We are convinced that education is one of the most important tools for people to have the opportunity to change their life situation. But in order for people to have the opportunity to change their life situation, it is necessary that the surrounding society gives them the opportunity to do just that. That is why we at Dispurse work with three parts that together contribute to sustainable change for both the individual and the society in which she lives.

FOCUS

FOCUS wants to offer women the opportunity to develop a basic literacy. FOCUS has a content that focuses on usability and meaningfulness and the technology enables more women to have the opportunity to educate themselves as they can study in places and times that suit their life situation.

ECA

We work to give our participants the opportunity to continue their education in the areas they want and need. By engaging national, regional and local actors, we create opportunities for further education for our participants.

Reading spaces

Our work includes the creation of meeting places where our participants can read, discuss literature and exchange experiences together. The material offered is based on the participants' needs and interest in the communities we work.

Our projects

At Dispurse, we are convinced that a holistic approach is required to make real and sustainable change and that we are stronger together. Our projects are carried out together with national, regional and local actors with a focus on offering women the opportunity to educate themselves.

 Below is a selection of the exciting projects we are working on right now.

A human right

Being able to read, write and count is not only a human right, it is also a key to being able to live an independent life and to become a positive force that can help influence and develop society. We want to provide an opportunity for women who for various reasons have not had the opportunity to develop a basic literacy, to develop a basic literacy that is both functional, digital and critical.

Dispurse now operates in northwestern South America, where the need for education is very extensive among a large part of the population, especially among women

Agenda 2030

Education is a human right that plays a key role in Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Education is the key to economic growth, gender equality and participation in society. Increased levels of education can be linked to reduced poverty and increased equality, improved health, better working conditions, and increased opportunities to exercise citizenship (Unesco, 2020).

Through our work, we work primarily towards goals 1, 4 and 5, although in our work we indirectly help to promote all sustainability goals.
