ProgettoMondo Mlal is a leading italian non-governmental organization for international cooperation with headquarters in Verona. Over 45 years, we have implemented more than 330 projects in 22 countries, in Africa, Latin America and Europe. Privileged targets of our initiatives are younger generations. ProgettoMondo Mlal embodies an idea of the world where young people are a driving force capable to pave a way out from poverty towards the construction of a fairer, prosperous and sustainable global society. Youth comprise nearly 30 per cent of the world’s population. The involvement of today’s youth in development decision-making is critical to the long-term success of any programme or initiatives. In our vision, empowering young generations and actively involving them in the promotion of economic, social and environmental development creates new opportunities for all. In Europe, educating youths to global citizenship and environmental sustainability is one of our key commitments. We offer learning paths to make girls and boys become environmentally conscious leaders able to promote environmental sustainability in others. That is our contribution to build up a new, possible world!

An Ka Here So’s mission is to support Burkinabe people in meeting higher standard of health and to promote their development. To achieve its goal, the Association An Ka Here So can rely on the professionalism of high skilled human resources with 15-years of experience in the field of health and social sciences. In the vision of the association, to assure decent health standards is a pre-condition and a necessary step to favour the activation of communitarian mechanisms leading to an overall improvement of the living conditions of the population. Health problems are, in the most of the cases, directly linked to environmental standards and influenced by the scarcity and loss of natural resources as a consequence of a model of development which does not integrate the principle of sustainability. Given the direct effects that a more rational use of common resources, such as water, may have on the lives of people, the association has been engaging, since its constitution, in initiatives of awareness raising in the field of MDG-7 targeted to local communities.
