Cultivating communities that thrive

aboutFor more than 30 years World Accord has been actively involved in highly successful international development projects and programs located in Latin America and Asia – with new and exciting projects being added as we continue to grow.World Accord’s philosophy of empowering people at the local level means that rather than simply sending money or sending our people to work in the field we take a different approach, based on the principles of partnership.

World Accord is successful because we partner with established local organizations already working effectively at the grass roots level in our program countries. We carefully select and screen our partners using a rigorous process of due diligence to ensure the integrity and expertise that our accomplished partners bring to all of our project and program endeavors.

During program implementation, we are involved in evaluating program activities, actively monitoring expenditures, reviewing progress reports and marking program milestones. Through ongoing interaction and regular visits to the field we ensure that every dollar you invest is handled wisely, providing the maximum benefit to the people and communities we partner with around the world.

Annual Reports


projectsAt World Accord we deeply believe that effective international development begins at the local level. That is why we keep the knowledge and expertise of our program partners at the centre of the work we do. The end result of this collaborative approach is a process that delivers diverse, highly targeted development activities that respond to the unique needs, capacities, and goals of specific communities in their own environments. It also means that World Accord’s contributions help build long-term capacities and local economies.

World Accord is actively involved in a wide range of international development activities in Latin American and Asian countries that include: icro-enterprise and micro-credit, community healthcare initiatives, sustainable agricultural practices, education and capacity building, community organizing, soil and water conservation, environmental protection strategies, finance and accounting management, gender equality issues.
