Economic democracy and sustainable development are the driving forces of prosperous societies

We embrace Community Economic Development as our action method:
we aim to strengthen communities and lead them to be built on co-operation,
mutual aid, and a devotion to the common good.

We believe those are the building blocks of a better world.

How do we work?

Our interventions are based on four key elements:

Capacity building

We provide training to improve the business skills of community enterprises and strengthen them as cooperative organisations.

Seed capital

We grant communities financial resources to invest in equipment and infrastructure and expand their production capacity.

Local partnerships

We work hand in hand with a network of local organizations that complement and enhance our work with communities.

Regional strategy

Although our work is project-based we develop regional development strategies in coordination with local administrations and other partners.
