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.
