Tackling Poverty / Solidarity
In its first Global Report, Emmaus International is making the voices of the most excluded heard, presenting alternatives and demands, and launching a new appeal against the causes of poverty.
In Belgium the three Emmaus groups are all traditional Emmaus communities. We have 60 companions living and working in our 3 groups. Combined, our 3 associations collect around 1,000 tons of furniture, clothing and electronic goods per year, 70% of which are brought back into circulation in our shops.
Defending human rights / Migration
The creamery was created in 2007 thanks to a partnership with the Italian Emmaus community of Villafranca. It currently employs 12 people and collects 2,000 litres of milk per day from small-scale local farms.
Circular economy / The environment
Cycling is, after walking, the most environmentally-friendly mode of transport. Emmaus Jura decided to use bikes as a means for creating a fairer, more equal society.
