For over 25 years we have enjoyed a variety of partnerships with other organizations – foundations, charities, businesses, and faith communities. They have provided all sorts of support including financial gifts, agricultural expertise, mechanical and engineering know-how, architectural drawings and designs, construction support, materials and tools, computer equipment and training, strategic planning, financial management, leadership development, and training. They have sponsored interns from the US as well as other full-time advisors and workers.
The CODEP project would not be where it is today if it hadn’t been for such constant and enthusiastic partners.

In the space of a few years, solidarity has undergone a great many changes. Today, a wide range of initiatives are being implemented in developing countries: cooperatives, local associations, social entrepreneurs, producers’ organisations, etc. There are large numbers of stakeholders working on a daily basis to promote essential services for their local communities and help develop their regions.
PU supports projects being implemented in vulnerable contexts, where local people are socially and economically isolated and natural environments are being destroyed.
The association identifies the support and assistance needed then tailors its response to meet the expectations of its partners, via three modes of intervention:
provision of specific skills within the context of a Short-Term Volunteer Assignment (STVA), securing the involvement of people willing to give a little of their time to come and share their knowledge, understanding of an problem or expertise,
continued partnership offering longer term support to local partners,
provision of funding for specific projects (reforestation, restoration of vulnerable ecosystems, renovation of dwellings, etc.).
Created in 2000 based on an original model of voluntary commitment, PU is directed and administered by former directors of Médecins du Monde, Handicap International, Greenpeace and a number of business leaders. Awarded public utility status, its activities are focused on adult vocational training and support, socio-educational support, protection and restoration of biodiversity, agroforestry and combating deforestation.
These activities are managed courtesy of two programmes:
STVA which provides skills transfer assignments
The “Environment & Development” programme which provides technical and financial support to local organisations.
