The Luxembourg-based charitable organisation Dignity Asbl has announced it will be hosting a fundraising dinner on 24 March 2024.

Dignity is a non-profit organisation created in 2006 and based in Howald, which aims to support development projects in South India. Discussing the association’s creation, the Association’s President, Yvonne Lanners, noted it was a project evolving as a gesture of gratitude for the support and protection she received from locals during her stay in India, as the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami were raging.

Speaking to, Yvonne Lanners explained: “Currently, we support 1000 women and their children in Tamil Nadu (Puddukottai district), whose husbands left them neglected and abandoned, lacking support. Dignity works with the Indian NGO SELVA to provide training for women who can create their own income: carpet weaving, sewing, gardening, selling tea, growing flowers for nearby temples. A microcredit provided by Dignity helps them establish mini-enterprises to meet their basic needs.

The project focuses on supporting women and alternative agriculture projects for local farmers in India. The association also occasionally helps sell a number of traditional Indian products made by the women it supports.

The association will organise an Indian charity dinner on 24 March 2024 in the “Am Duerf” hall in Hesperange, Itzig from 11:30 to 16:00. A menu costs €50 (excluding drinks) and includes :


Vegetarian samosa


Mixed vegetable curry
Chicken Tikka Masala
Lamb Sahi Korma
Hot mint and mango chutney


A dessert at choice
Coffee or tea

A raffle will be organised during the event.

Menus for children up to six years old are free of charge. Reservations can be made until 5 March 2024 via tel.: 621-633876 or via email: Ensuring the transfer to the Dignity bank account (LU610019225574804000) secures the reservations.

The proceeds from this event will be directed towards financing the association’s projects aimed at supporting women and impoverished families in South India.
