About Business Network
We work closely with a network of 617 partner organizations in 38 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America as well as providing help to disadvantaged groups in the Netherlands itself.
We are proud co-founders of Caritas Internationalis , which brings an additional worldwide network of over 160 organizations; we are able to organize responses to disasters even more rapidly in countries where Caritas in represented.
Our local presence in a particular country often results from the fact that our Caritas partners are usually found in fragile and (post-) conflict areas.Continue
Building flourishing communities
Fragility demands a comprehensive approach. Building flourishing communities requires more than only healthcare or security and justice. It demands combined action and programs in different disciplines to deliver empowerment, security, opportunity, entrepreneurship and governance so that people can rebuild trust, resilience and self-reliance.
That is why our professional staff also works inCordaid offices in 11 countries and we are represented in many others, either executing programs or supporting partners on projects.Continue
We have a long track record in Healthcare, especially in sexual and reproductive health, and in Disaster Response. We are active in the more responsible and sustainable use of natural resources and in stimulating (investment in) rural and (post-) conflict entrepreneurship through dedicated investment funds.Continue
As an organization, Cordaid began because people cared about alleviating the suffering of people in war-torn Europe.Since 1914 , we have shared our own prosperity and knowledge with those who still have to fight for the kind of communities we take for granted. That action has immeasurable impact as, like Cordaid, people around the world strive to build flourishing and peaceful communities. We call that: Care. Act. Share. Like Cordaid.
