Mission and Objectives:

Main Projects / Activities: 

− International Development Cooperation: We focus our actions in projects that
support and foster young leaders in Latin American countries.
− Codevelopment: Our work in this area concentrates in preventing migration
through the access to post-secondary education and improving and strengthening
competences of young people with fewer opportunities. Moreover, we also support
migrants associations on different fields to empower them.
− Development Education and Awareness Raising: We work on projects that provide
detailed background information regarding development cooperation, migration,
interculturality, etc. in formal as well as in informal education. All our actions in this
field tries to educate to act in a spirit of worldwide solidarity and to enable citizens to
develop a critical understanding of development topics and encourage them to get
involved themselves.
− Information Society: This area aims to foster social inclusion of people with
fewer opportunities (specially the Romani community) through the use of New
Communications and Information Technologies and bridge the digital gap.
