Highlights of our Impact

How we work: Empowering Communities

When we speak of development, we refer to the self-development of people and their communities. Development is not a project to be managed, or a problem to be solved with the knowledge and power of others. It is a process in which people act together, make political and economic choices together, and struggle for autonomy and emancipation.
