Code of Conduct

When working on projects in the global south, we prioritize fostering a diverse range of perspectives. While it's challenging for any single organization to mitigate existing political and monetary power imbalances, we believe that individual efforts to seek solutions can contribute to achieving this goal.

We therefore work under a "Code of Conduct" whereby cooperation adheres to the social justice and diversity training method of "Mahloquet" *, aiming to steer project work by the following six principles:
Listening attentively
Engaging in a collaborative learning process
Creating opportunities for open-minded dialogue
Embracing ambiguity as a part of the process
Recognizing that there may not always be a definitive solution
Avoiding the pursuit of a singular "truth"
* The method of Mahloquet (dialogic dispute conversation) was developed by Leah Carola Czollek, Gudrun Perko, Corinne Kaszner, and Max Czollek and is a framework for social justice and diversity training . It draws on the Jewish tradition of interpreting religious texts and has been adapted for training purposes, removed from the religious context and accordingly modified.

Our Approach
Following numerous trips to Africa and Haiti with various NGOs and extensive insights into the global situation of girls, Toni felt compelled to engage more directly with specific projects and provide flexible financial support. Consequently, she decided to establish her own organization.

The Toni Garrn Foundation was founded in 2016 to champion girls' education initiatives in Sub-Saharan Africa, aiming to empower individuals, their families, and local communities.
Over the years, we have expanded beyond our initial focus solely on education to offer a more comprehensive and tailored support.

Our collaboration with partners in the Global South encompasses various areas, including adult education, healthcare, safe accommodation infrastructure, and both mental and physical well-being.
Academic Education
Academic education is vital for holistic development as political structures often struggle to meet the massive demand for education.

Toni Garrn Foundation bridges this gap, emphasizing the importance of academic education for sustainable progress.
Skill Based Training
& Adult Education
Skill-based training and adult education are essential for empowering communities and fostering sustainable
development, through the creation of new markets. Creating jobs and boosting the economy go hand in hand, leading to overall economic improvement.

Jobs increase income, driving consumer spending and stimulating demand for goods and services. This cycle of growth generates prosperity and improved living standards for society.
Health Care & Well- being
Access to healthcare in rural areas, is often scarce. If the compound allows for it, having a health center is a vital addition to the school and the surrounding community, providing access to adequate treatment and consultation.

The pillars of our work in alignment with the SDGs
The Toni Garrn Foundation is committed to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within our work.

Our overarching goals align above all with SDG 1 "eradicating poverty" and SDG 5 "promoting gender equality". Through our initiatives, we strive to contribute to these global objectives and create lasting impact in the regions.

Our primary focus in achieving these goals is on the following three pillars:
Academic Education
It encompasses targets such as ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education for all, promoting lifelong learning opportunities, and achieving universal literacy and numeracy in alignment with SDG 4 "quality Education".
Skill Based Training
Adult Education
This goal emphasizes the importance of promoting sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. Skill-based training is crucial for achieving SDG 8 "decent work and economic growth" as it helps individuals acquire the skills needed to access decent employment opportunities, contribute to economic growth, and improve livelihoods. By investing in skill-based training programs, countries can enhance workforce productivity, reduce unemployment, and foster economic development, thus advancing progress towards SDG 8.
Health Care
Well- being
Our goal is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. The connection between healthcare and SDG 3 "good health and well- being" is straightforward: improving access to quality healthcare services, including preventive, curative, and palliative care, is essential for achieving good health outcomes and well-being. We additionally include mental health in our approach.
