Social Change

" Empowering people can be
viewed as an asset on its own."

Policy making, support to decentralised systems

We develop our projects with the conviction that local decision making has the most direct influence in people's lives. Our projects focus on enabling local actors to engage in public action. This may imply developing their capacity to discuss and communicate, opening up to problem-solving and decision-making skills, and the ability to work in partnership with local authorities. We contribute to design policies, using participatory processes. 

Social dialogue, Human rights, Gender equality

We develop tools to progress towards a stronger and more egalitarian society. By means of guidelines, manuals, organizations mapping and other studies, we intend to support institutions, communities, organizations in their action towards protecting the most vulnerable

Support to civil society and non-state actors

We work to transform knowledge and experience into consensus and action that will help structuring communities' initiatives. We conduct training and capacity building activities to empower the people and encourage the emergence of social change.
