We design and implement projects that help people develop attitudes & skills, to acquire knowledge that allows them to make decisions based on the benefit of themselves and others, and to put those decisions into practice. At the grassroots level, we accompany communities in the implementation of their sustainable visions that aim for social change, social inclusion, and a fight against poverty and injustice.
PARTICIPATORY COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT
Education for Development
Participatory Video-Dance & performance with refugees
Community Capacity Building
Communication for Development
We design and create Participatory Video workshops and events especially for vulnerable groups (women and youth refugees, immigrants, or indigenous and impoverished populations). At an individual level, participants regain some of their dignity, self-esteem, and freedom through this art-therapeutic, meditative video-making process that allows them to be heard.
As community development tools, our participatory projects engage and empower vulnerable communities to take collective action. The choice is theirs: share knowledge, raise awareness, advocate for their rights, and impact decision makers. With their participation, we also create various cultural events that are open to a wider audience (video-dance performance, poetry night, projection of short videos, music concerts, arts and crafts fair).
Inclusive active citizenship
We Take Action
We promote inclusive active citizenship by partnering with whoever feels concerned with improving our daily lives and to take action for our wider community’s benefit and our environment. We call for joint action with the vulnerable, but empowered, communities we have worked with (refugees, women, youth, etc…) and active citizens from the wider society, to volunteer and collaborate, united, for a greater cause. Social inclusion in action!
