Our local partners
⇒ The projects are above all partnerships with the beneficiary population: the interventions address clearly identified needs that emanate from the communities themselves and that are then specified through the technical diagnoses of the teams. Throughout the duration of project, the involvement of the beneficiaries is paramount as a guarantee of their commitment and of the sustainability of the project.
Specific collaborations are forged with community groups that act as relays or contact points for the rest of the village, such as associations of farmers, committees or unions of users, parents committees, traditional chiefs and village leaders, health workers, women’s groups or groups of local artisans and technicians.
⇒ Inter Aide collaborates with public bodies and the representatives of ministries for every sector concerned. The aim is to help foster an effective coordination of the work of the parties involved. Wherever possible, we seek to reinforce the capabilities of public bodies such as ministries of supervision and their local representatives, district authorities, municipal authorities, health centers etc., to monitor activities.
We aim to promote links and complementarities between the public and private sectors whenever the context makes it feasible and appropriate.
⇒ When the context is favorable and in cases where it is pertinent, Inter Aide works with local organizations as operational partners (such as local NGOs, companies or cooperatives).
Our ambition is to create parties capable of extending and sustaining our actions in the future and to render them independent. The support we provide to these local operational partners aims to professionalize them in their area of expertise, strengthen their methodologies and help them secure the necessarily finances to launch other similar projects themselves.
