Vision

We believe in a world in which solidarity, social justice, peace, worldliness, and cooperation among peoples can be the basis for development.

We want a world where people and families in fragile situations live with dignity and are protagonists of their own future.

We see international cooperation as work done with and together with, respecting the local context and language, cultural and religious roots.

Mission

We prioritize activities in response to the needs of the vulnerable populations of the Global South and in particular women and children with disabilities, using the methodology of CBR- Community Based Rehabilitation/ Rehabilitation on a Community-Based Basis- as a multi-sectoral approach that aims to achieve and maintain maximum independence, full physical, mental, social and vocational capacity and full inclusion and participation in all aspects of life; a model that emphasizes inclusive community-based development and the liberation of individuals from all forms of violence. 

We base our actions on community empowerment: a method of work based on collaboration with communities, institutions, churches, and people in the areas in which we operate and focused on the self-development of social contexts by paying special attention to the institutional and regulatory context of the country. We intend to cooperate for the defense and promotion of Fundamental Human Rights as elaborated by the United Nations, and for the achievement of the 17 Development Goals as elaborated in the 2030 Agenda. Our development cooperation interventions have a specific focus on replicability at the national level of locally tested interventions, to ensure sustainability over time of the projects and programs promoted. We also work to promote rural development, support for family-based and non-intensive agriculture, improved with the contribution of sustainable methods such as agroecology and social agriculture.
