Broederlijk Delen was founded in 1961 in response to the famine in Congo. After that, Broederlijk Delen evolved to an organization that supports communities to become self-reliant.
Broederlijk Delen works together with some 130 local organizations. Together with these partner organizations we successfully combat poverty and inequality. It focuses on three themes: right to food, sustainable management of natural resources, and participation and peace.
Broederlijk Delen has a typical way of working. Together with local organizations, it looks for the best way to combat inequality. In its own country it calls everyone to share.
Broederlijk Delen strives for a sustainable world without inequality. Because there is enough for everyone. Yet people live in poverty.
Inequality in the world is increasing, even with economic growth. That growth has reached its limits. Broederlijk Delen chooses an alternative: 'enough is good' instead of 'never enough'.
It does not do that alone. It wants to be a broad solidarity movement, both in Flanders and worldwide. Together they build the dream of a world without inequality. It starts from a long-term vision. It is convinced that this is the only way to achieve sustainable results.
