High Patronage

Grande-Duchesse Maria Teresa

S.A.R. la Grande-Duchesse Maria Teresa

ADA is under the High Auspices of HRH the Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg.

On 5 July 2007, our association was granted the High Patronage of the Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, a true mark of confidence on the part of Her Royal Highness. HRH Maria Teresa is very active in the promotion of microcredit and is the honorary chairperson of the LUXFLAG Microfinance Label. She has visited numerous microfinance projects in Nepal, Mali, Bangladesh, Thailand, Laos and Bosnia, and denounced the status of women in Afghanistan. Indeed, improving the quality of life of women and girls around the world is a top priority and active pursuit of the Grand Duchess. And as it's happens, that this is one of the main impacts of microfinance.


To find out more about the humanitarian involvement of H.R.H. the Grand Duchess, you may consult the website of the grand-ducal Court.

"Parce qu’elle réveille les forces créatrices qui sont le propre de l’homme, la microfinance annonce, je le crois fermement, une ère nouvelle. La charité et l’assistance demeureront indispensables aussi loin que se porte notre regard, mais l’outil du micro-crédit apporte quelque chose de neuf en permettant aux plus démunis de retrouver leur dignité et d’apporter par eux-mêmes la solution à leur condition. Ils redeviennent pleinement acteurs de leur vie. En cela, ce sont des perspectives inconnues jusqu'ici qui se dessinent."
