What makes us different
  • Designed to last: our projects are sustainable because they strengthen the skills and knowledge of national education and health institutions, local NGOs and the local population;
  • In-depth knowledge of the field: we don’t send expatriates, and our local teams are natives of the countries where we work;
  • Collaboration: we co-construct all our projects with the beneficiaries we support, so that they can ultimately become the autonomous agents of their own change;
  • Efficiency: pilot projects are tested and then rolled out on a larger scale once they have proven their impact;
  • Leverage: by training key people in ministries and at local level, we transform educational and health practices in a sustainable way;
  • Expertise: a team of experienced specialists in public health and education sciences applies our unique pedagogical know-how;
  • Quality: our projects are designed to guarantee their impact, and we are recognized as trusted partners by international cooperation agencies, donors and local players.

Reyna, 7 years old, Guatemala

I especially like reading stories and learning to write. Later, I would like to become a doctor so that I can heal others.

My donation makes a difference

For example:

With 70 francs:

I am donating a bilingual textbook in French and Mooré (the local language) to 8 children in Burkina Faso to help them make better progress at school.

With 140 francs:

I am helping 250 pregnant women in Bangladesh to prepare for the birth of their baby and the risks associated with childbirth.

With 200 francs:

I am funding in-service training in bilingual education for 10 teachers in Guatemala to improve the quality of their lessons.
