  • Since 1994 I.D. (Initiative Développement) has accompanied disadvantaged communities in developing countries, by actively supporting them through local organisations (associations, companies, town halls), aiming at long-term provision of basic needs (health, water and sanitation, education, agriculture, energies).

Initiative Développement (ID) is currently conducting 20 programmes in seven countries (Haiti, Benin, the Comoros, Congo-Brazzaville, Chad, Togo, and China).

Our vision

»  promoting individual and community autonomy by fostering the emergence and reinforcement of local actors;

»  supporting all forms of human development, particularly social and economic, through concrete and lasting action.

Our missions

Our commitments fall into three main interwoven missions:

» Developing and strengthening capacity of local partners: we instigate the formation of local organisations and enterprises, help them to professionalise, work with local institutions (local authorities and regional bodies) to ensure that these partners become established, and ultimately transfer project responsibility to them.

» Satisfying basic needs in a sustainable manner: we work with the most deprived, improve their living conditions, and implement lasting solutions.

» Innovating: we constantly look to adapt to local contexts, ensure a high level of expertise for tackling new problems, and open up new project opportunities.

Our work

In practice, our initiatives are implemented through three types of activity, each corresponding to specific approach and expertise:

» Establishing local actors and helping them to structure themselves and build their  organisational capacities
» Devising and implementing projects that closely involve local populations
» Providing services within our areas of expertise.
