World Accord

Waterloo, Canada
Joined September 2017

We work through our local partners to implemement programs in microcredit, agroecology. They mostly target women.

Presence in: El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nepal
Focus: Economic Empowerment, Gender-based violence, Other

For more than 30 years World Accord has been actively involved in successful international development programs located in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador as well as Nepal. 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.

Key achievements

Local Capacity Building: World Accord equips partners and the communities they work with to respond to their own needs. It fosters the development of local administrative, planning, and management skills, and encourages the development of local leadership.
