Our actions - Solidarity

Solidarity

Fondacio is involved in many solidarity actions all around the world

 

 

Building a more humane and just world means engaging together with the poorest and most vulnerable. With its partners, Fondacio implements development and solidarity projects (PDS), acting as closely as possible to local difficulties and proposing solutions, care, rehabilitation programs, support, training, reintegration assistance, ...

Combining commitment and meaning

Fondacio is involved in development and solidarity projects (PDS) whose aim is to give men and women, who are experiencing difficulties of all kinds, the means to become actors of their lives, by promoting the development of their autonomy or by helping them to rebuild themselves.

Fondacio's development and solidarity programs and projects are based on the search for personal autonomy, respect for local cultures and the principle of subsidiarity. Even if some situations require urgent action, Fondacio's action is based on the long term and therefore leaves much room for the formation of local actors.

 

Be useful as close as possible to local issues

In some countries where Fondacio operates, the community promotes the involvement of its members in solidarity development programs to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable. Projects address the specific needs of each region.

These programs are run by associations governed by local law and managed by local actors integrated into the socio-economic fabric. The projects are aimed at the entire population, regardless of political or religious affiliation. They are conducted in conjunction with local civil and political structures.

Other solidarity actions are carried out outside these programs as shown below.

 

 

Get engaged all over the world
with partners to meet many challenges

For Fondacio, forging partnerships in each region is the guarantee of the right intervention for each project. They make it possible to create bridges between the different worlds, to learn from each other, in a spirit of mutual aid and synergy of skills and means. Our flagship projects are working with key partners to address the diversity of challenges.
