Mission

Arcilla Research, Epen, The Netherlands- is a small, Dutch-based, tecnology enterprise, Which has developed a special body of techniques and materials based on a mineral binder sistem, Whereby products with ceramic -like properties are cured rather than fired. The mineral binder sistem and range of new materials are neither cemens nor ceramic, yet offer many of the advantages of both. A New binder sistem has been developed for use with man-made and natural fibres to create water-repellent products
Three units have been set up by Arcilla Research to develop its family of new materials into useful products:
ARCILLA Ceramic Tecnology has centred on utilisation of secondary resources susch as coal fly ash to create products for building and construction.
PYRAMIC Advance Ceramic Materials is translating the tecnology of Arcilla Research into high-performance materials and products.

Interrelated projects with the Key projec, advance building materials and construction system, at the core. The materials are lightweight - gender-sensitive; the may be produced and assembled by women and older children. The construction system is deseigned for stability-providing extremely high resistance to storm and earthquake.
The RENEW project for developing Biogas (alternative energy), natural fertilizer and micro-mineral powder from agricultural residues and animal dung, is one of the major arcillary projects. Other projects making up the programme include: a solar energy water harvesting system for providing people with both hot and cold water, a process for utilisation of ceramic waste to produce surface-glazed ceramic tiles sans kiln, durable sewer, water and irrigation pipe, low-cost road construction and tecnology for cleansing of polluted land and waterways.

Mission

Objectives:

The concept of. Sustainable human developmen has been identified at the Rio 92 Summit and fostered during the WSSD in Johannesburg as the leading strategic framework for proventy alleviation, environmet management and social equity.
Proverty phenomena interplays with negative physical, sociological, judicial and economical situations. Undestading and analyzing them appears as a firts step towards operational actions. In this same vein, a Togolese group of sholars and development specialists has ser up since December 2000, the Concerted Research Center on Development (CRCD) - a non profit association which hold an NGO status. The CRCD roots its activities on the type II parnership modus operandi thata offers the opportunity to the civil society to engage larger spectrum of development activities with public and private sectors. For this end, The CRCD intends to: conceive and to publish methodological, technical and scientific tools for social and economic development
- Participate in studies and researches on topics related to sustainable developement
- establish strong relationship with research institutes abroad and with similar structures at national level
- act. As local representative for international civil society networks in order to mobilize human an material resources for poverty allevation.

Thematic Focus
Land Tenure

Las policies and tenure issues in Africa are currenty focusing attention of decision makers, donor agencies, researches and civil society. CRCD has develop and is implementing a programme on land policy and tenure regimens. It uses various means like a sustainable apprenticeship, information sharing, capacities building and research in order to favor a debate on tenure policies

Environment

Togo is seriously confronted to progressive depletion of its natural resorces. Human bad behaviors are mostly the cause although physical reason cannot be neglected. For CRCD, informing and educating stakeholders is therefore a major component of the national development strategy.

The CRCD will act by all means for the involvement of environmental considerations in development plans, programme and projects. Some highly qualified human resources do exist within CRCD to carry out impact assessment and to formulate norms and standards of. Quality

Urban management .

The rapid urbanization in togo is happening in a context marked by the institutional weakness of the state, the lack of an operational descentralization process and the economic stagnation. Solving the urban development issue will require adequate insfrastructure supply and the amelioration of activities systems in a sanitized living area

Microfinance

Microfinance becomes nowadays an important tool in addessing poverty. When urban and rural poor are deprived from formal financial facilities, its is such decentralized financial systems which rescue them. CRCD takes it as a duty to help in promoting and reinforcing capacities within microfinance organizations by offering its evaluation/ Counsel/training services

Federación Uruguaya de Cooperativistas de Vivienda por Ayuda Mutua

Mission

The first mutual aid housing cooperatives emerged in the country in 1966, when three pilot experiences, composed of labor activists from the Uruguayan hinterland, were sponsored and supported by a nonprofit private organization: the Uruguayan Cooperative Center (CCU). These cooperatives became an alternative housing solution for ninety-five families. This program was financed by the national government and the Inter-American Bank (IDB), as part of a bilateral agreement for the construction of 4.100 housing units. At the end of 1969, with reference to all the programs built in the country, both by the state and by the private sector, these co- operatives had achieved the best results in terms of costs and final qualities.
With the inclusion of the cooperative system in the National Housing Act, passed in 1968, this alternative was rapidly replicated throughout the country. The years that followed the approval of the Housing Act saw the emergence and consolidation of the cooperative movement: from three projects built in 1969 to a reality of 210 cooperatives under construction in 1971, meaning housing solutions for more than 6.700 low-income families of urban areas. Between 1970 and 1973, thousands of members of labor unions and dwellers of working class settlements organized and turned to the Institutes of Technical Assistance (IATs) for support and advice to set up housing cooperatives. Until 1975 the cooperative movement was the main receiver of loans from the National Housing Fund; at the end of this period, one of every two loans provided by the National Mortgage Bank (BHU) was to mutual aid cooperatives.
The foundation of the Uruguayan Federation of Mutual Aid Housing Cooperatives (FUCVAM), in 1970, was a fundamental factor in the consolidation of mutual aid cooperatives as a social force, becoming one of the most powerful urban social movements of contemporary Uruguayan history. During the immediate years that followed its foundation, FUCVAM obtained important achievements that contributed to the expansion of the cooperative proposal: larger and faster allocation of land for housing cooperatives, acceleration of the administrative procedures for approval of the legal status, negotiation of better terms and conditions for the loans, were some of the most important goals achieved.
After thirty years of the enactment of the National Housing Act in Uruguay, mutual aid cooperatives have proved to be the system allowing to obtain the best solutions at the lowest costs (with more than 16.000 units already built) and the best results as regards up keeping, maintenance and urban complementation of housing projects, as well as the one that has best fitted the needs of the beneficiaries, and that has appreciated and used the community spaces in the best way.
After construction of the dwellings is completed, the organization that the groups acquire during the building period -which is later extended as the collective ownership system which most of them have chosen as the structure of use and administration of the common state- has naturally led them to approach, also collectively, other common social problems; thus, multiple community-oriented initiatives of social development have been promoted, as a grassroots contribution to improving the quality of life of the cooperative members and settlers of the surrounding neighborhoods to which the cooperative is open.
Nowadays FUCVAM is composed by 320 cooperatives (18.000 families). The Uruguayan housing cooperative system is being developed in several countries as Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentine, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
FUCVAM is involved in a few networks such as HIC (Habitat International Coalition), SELVIP (Secretaría Latinoamericana de Vivienda Popular), ICA- Housing Co-operatives (International Co-operative Alliance).
At the moment FUCVAM is interested in integrating new networks oriented to other thematic areas such as political education, social alliances, fight against the neoliberalism, etc.
The present Workshop turns out very opportune to interchange experiences of communitarian development, political actions and transformation of the daily issues.

Homeless International

Mission

Homeless International supports slum dwellers to improve their lives and find lasting solutions to urban poverty. We are the only UK charity devoted to the challenge of housing and basic services in slums.

Our vision is a world in which all people can exercise their right to land, basic services and shelter. Shelter is more than a house: it is a space for privacy, economic activity, social care and personal fulfilment. We help communities transform slums by supporting them to work together to secure land, build homes, access safe water and sanitation, and negotiate with governments – ensuring that they have a voice that gets heard.

We help slum dwellers by supporting the development of local organisations in Africa and Asia, which have their roots in poor communities. These organisations often grow from small social movements into self-reliant organisations that are able provide shelter and basic services solutions that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.

We believe that sustainable solutions to homelessness can be created only if people have access to land, finance, information, organisation and technology – and if they have an opportunity to play a lead role in designing solutions that work for them.

Mission

IHA-UDP tries to improve the quality of life of the poorest of the poor in a specific area. As such, it implements programmes based on the felt needs of the community and with full participation of the target beneficiaries. The activities reach out to all groups of people (children, youth, women, men) who fall in the category of the poorest of the poor.
VISION:To bring about social justice by alleviating poverty with the full participation of the poorest of the poor to regain their self-dignity and self-worth, and so acquire self-sufficiency.
MISSION:To break the vicious cycle of poverty by dealing with its root causes, primarily through ‘releasing’ them from fatalism, low self-image, loss of dignity and apathy; through concentization resulting in empowerment and capacity building. The poorest of the poor will then become decision making owners, leaders and sustainers of their own development programmes which they priorities for themselves.
OBJECTIVE:·To improve the quality of life of the communities. To achieve this the Project works by addressing the multiple, inter-related felt-needs of the community at the grassroots level using the integrated holistic approach.·To enable the community to be self-sufficient so that all development activities become sustainable beyond Project phase-out.

4) When there is need to relate to foreign governments about human rights violations, we send an appeal throughout our network by e-mail asking our members to write to the government concerned, or the funder concerned (Asian Development Bank, for example) and express their concern.
5) LOCOA asks local members what they need and tries to do that. It does not have a program of action into which members must fit.

Our Mission is to end homelessness.

Toward this end, the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) engages in public education, policy advocacy, and grassroots organizing. We focus our work in the following 4 areas: housing justice, economic justice, health care justice, and civil rights. Most recently, we launched the Bringing America Home Campaign, a comprehensive campaign to end homelessness.
The National Coalition for the Homeless, founded in 1982, is a national network of people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, activists and advocates, community-based and faith-based service providers, and others committed to a single mission. That mission, our common bond, is to end homelessness. We are committed to creating the systemic and attitudinal changes necessary to prevent and end homelessness. At the same time, we work to meet the immediate needs of people who are currently experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of doing so. We take as our first principle of practice that people who are currently experiencing homelessness or have formerly experienced homelessness must be actively involved in all of our work.

Observatori DESC

Mission

xEl Observatori DESC se constituyó con motivo del 50º aniversario de la Declaración Universal de los Derechos Humanos. Es una entidad formada por organizaciones y personas que tiene como finalidad promover la justicia social a través de una visión integral de los derechos humanos, y en concreto los derechos sociales.
La interdependencia entre el desarrollo humano, la democracia y los derechos humanos nos obliga a mirar más allá del reconocimiento de los derechos civiles y políticos.
Consideramos que una de las principales causas generadoras de pobreza, exclusión y conflicto social es el incumplimiento de los derechos económicos, sociales y culturales.
Nuestro objetivo principal es movilizar y capacitar a las comunidades víctimas de violaciones de los DESC para que puedan llevar a cabo un rol activo en aquellas decisiones que afecten su bienestar y disfrute de los derechos sociales fundamentales (educación, salud, vivienda, trabajo y alimentación).
En esta lucha hacia la exigibilidad de los DESC podemos encontrar un camino para llegar a una ciudadanía donde no quepan ni discriminaciones ni exclusiones.
Durante los últimos años el Observatori ha dedicado un especial esfuerzo a promover el derecho a la vivienda y a la ciudad. Concretamente, ha desarrollado un trabajo de lucha contra los desalojos por motivos económicos.
