New project

Nicequest users have finished their last project! Thanks of them, UNHCR will be able to give access to a home for 100 refugee people in Iraq. You can remember the project HERE.

In the next social challenge, they will collaborate with Vicente Ferrer Foundation in order to improve the situation of widowed or abandoned women in rural Andhra Pradesh who suffer from gender-based violence and discrimination, facilitating their inclusion, integration and empowerment.

India is a country where gender violence is deeply present in all stages of women’s lived. Forced marriages, infanticide, deceit, rape, sexual harassment, prostitution, dowry or physical and verbal violence are some of the problems women must have to face, among others.

Thanks to the solidarity of Nicequest users, 27 widowed or abandoned women from Anantapur will receive a nutritional package (rice, wheat, legumes, millet and oil) for a year.

Moreover, they will be provided with support and help to deal with the violence and / or discrimination they suffer, offering them support and counseling and mediating to find suitable solutions.
