Our Mission

The Force is an international cooperation between three associations:

  • Verein zur Förderung von Rechten, Bildung und Kreativität von Frauen – The Force, based in Vienna, Austria
  • The Force, based in Stockholm, Sweden
  • Association F.O.R.C.E. – Femme pour l’Obtention du Respect, du Changement et de l’Epanouissement, based in Kpalimé, Togo

The associations are linked to each other through a mutual, validated partnership agreement.

The idea to realize the project TailoringTogo marks the beginning of The Force, which was founded in 2015. We see the project as our first step to reaching our goals in promoting female empowerment:


  • By providing free quality education
  • By creating safe and fair-paid work
  • By establishing sustainable future prospects
  • By promoting social, economic and political gender equality


  • By supporting traditional handcraft and art
  • By sharing ideas and implementing creative decisions in the work process
  • By finding new means of sustainable development cooperation


  • By investing in a local social business, led by a female entrepreneur
  • By opening an environment, in which women can inspire others and empower themselves in the process
  • By believing in talent and competence
  • By collaborating on the same eye-level
