La Isla Network

La Isla Network is a Nicaragua based NGO working at the intersection of public health and human rights to address the fatal epidemic of Chronic Kidney Disease of non-traditional causes (CKDnT, formerly known as Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown causes or CKDu) among sugarcane workers in Latin America. CKDnT kills more people in Nicaragua than lukemmia, AIDS and diabetes combined. We believe that some of the primary causes of CKDnT stem from harsh working conditions within the sugar industry.
The primary goal of La Isla Network is to improve working conditions within the sugar industry, and in turn save the lives of sugarcane workers in Nicaragua by ending the CKDnT epidemic.

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).
