Maisons familiales rurales (MFR)

Nos valeurs: humanisme, éducation populaire

Depuis 1937, 4 principes fondateurs régissent les Maisons familiales rurales (MFR):
-Responsabilité associative des acteurs locaux du monde rural (familles, professionnels, élus...)
-Education citoyenne et intégrale pour l'épanouissement des personnes
-Formation professionnelle des jeunes et adultes ruraux selon la pédagogie de l'alternance des MFR
-Développement local du milieu rural

Nous formons plus de 75000 personnes en France chaque année. Nous sommes en partenariat avec des MFR de 20 pays sur tous les continents (nous les accompagnons dans leur projet de développement de leur réseau, pour que les familles puissent elles-mêmes être en capacité de former les jeunes de leur milieu rural).

Make-A-Wish Foundation International

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has become the largest wish-granting organization in the world and can be found in over 36 countries on five continents.

With the help of generous donors and over 30,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted more than 250,000 wishes worldwide since inception.

MapAction

Humanitarian emergencies often strike without warning, destroying lives and livelihoods within a matter of seconds. In the immediate aftermath, the challenge for those responding is to know where to start.

Information is vital.

MapAction provides its services without discrimination, independently and neutrally anywhere in the world where there is a life-threatening humanitarian need. In practice MapAction’s services are predominantly required in low- to middle-income countries, most commonly in Africa, Asia and Latin America/Caribbean, where there is a gap in technical skills to deliver a comparable service in the first hours of an emergency response.

MapAction quickly gathers this crucial data at the disaster scene, conveying it visually in the form of maps. By creating this ‘shared operational picture’ for aid agencies, governments and local partners, we can help them make informed decisions and deliver aid and emergency supplies to the right place, quickly.

Max Havelaar France (MHF)

Our mission is to connect disadvantaged producers and consumers, promote fairer trading conditions and empower producers to combat poverty, strengthen their position and take more control over their lives.
MHF works to promote fair trading practices between France and developing countries. It is a founder member of Fairtrade International, based in Germany, the organisation responsible for setting international Fairtrade standards. MHF also works closely with FLO’s subsidiary, FLO-Cert, which is responsible for checking compliance with these standards by producers and traders.

Médecins du Monde

Doctors of the World includes a number of Doctors of the World organizations in Europe, North and South America and Asia, with the mandate to provide care to the most vulnerable populations and report on their situation. They provide care to the most vulnerable without regard for sex, age, religion, ethnic origin or political philosophy.

While remaining faithful to our mandate for “humanitarian emergency response”, their original tenet, Doctors of the World gradually expanded its field intervention to incorporate rehabilitation, prevention and development programs on the five continents.
