Inter Pares welcomes the announcement regarding the creation of a Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Business Enterprise.
Inter Pares supports local activist organizations to build a more equal world. Thanks to our generous donors, throughout 2017, we have strengthened many struggles for social justice in Canada and overseas.
We reached our goal! 1,697 donors made a gift during our Stories of Struggle campaign, which contributed $336,016 to Inter Pares' work. Thank you!
Inter Pares remains highly concerned by the ongoing Rohingya crisis in Burma and Bangladesh, and by the pressing need for stronger action.
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.
We put equality into practice as the key component for creating a better world.
We work in solidarity with people from around the world, connecting in a common cause.
We support women’s leadership because women, often marginalized, occupy a central and crucial role in societies.
We foster participation since people and communities need to actively participate in creating solutions to the poverty and injustice that affects their own lives.
Inter Pares is committed to ensuring clear, transparent, and positive contact with our donors. All staff members share a collective responsibility to ensure that our supporters’ donations are used well.
In 2016, Inter Pares' total expenses amounted to $6,259,702. Over 70% of Inter Pares’ total expenses are funds sent to social justice counterparts working in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Canada.
