A Professional NGO
In its vision of development: Because the struggle against poverty and inequalities requires the best skills, GRET defends a professional approach to development and enriches the sector with knowledge and innovative solutions.
In the involvement of developing country populations: GRET does not do charity; it believes that developing country people are citizen actors in their development. It therefore acts with them, favoring the dignity of citizenship over hand outs, capacity building over substitution, contribution to public policy over recycled unsuitable models, and working with the economic sector over sterile opposition.
In its practices: GRET has the experience and references necessary to conduct its development actions properly. It places particular importance on transparency and seriousness in management, a mark of confidence for its partners around the world and its public (European Union, AFD, government authorities and international organizations), associative and company donors.See more
