Building Partnerships for Global Justice
CoDevelopment Canada is a B.C.-based NGO that works for social change and global education in the Americas. Founded in 1985 by a group of activists who wanted to go beyond financial aid, CoDev builds partnerships between like-minded organizations in Canada and Latin America to foster learning, social change, and community empowerment. These partnerships educate Canadians about Latin America and allow them to directly support the region. Such connections build solidarity, mutual understanding and ultimately improve prospects for a fairer global order.
Our 2014 Annual Report is now available!
This year’s report features NOMADESC, our Latin American partner in Colombia, and the work they do defending the rights of Colombian communities and trade unionists through education, accompaniment, advocacy and mobilization. We are also proud to feature one of our amazing volunteers, Dean Sinnett.
The report also has updates from our human rights, labour rights and education rights programs and an update on our free-trade social enterprise Café Etico.
