About Us

Project for People implements international cooperation projects in India, Brazil and Benin promoting lasting changes, based on the active participation of beneficiary communities. The commitment and the activities of the members are aimed at improving the quality of life of people affected by poverty and inequality. Project for People and its memebers are non-partisan, non-denominational and do not gain any profit from these activities. The values of the association are respect for diversity, transparency and trust in people.

Project for People realizes development projects in the following areas:

  • health and food security;
  • education and human rights;
  • agricultural and economic development.

In order to implement these projects, the association is working on the following activities:

  • sharing and evaluation of projects proposed by local partners;
  • definition and preparation of projects;
  • fundraising activities and campaigns;
  • monitoring and coordination of activities during project implementation;
  • reporting of results;
  • fostering the development of managerial and organizational skills among the receiving communities.


Project for People offers an integrated model of intervention, addressing the main aspects of the lives of the beneficiaries. This model offers support actions linked to each other, aimed at improving the livelihoods of rural communities in their various aspects. In the countries of intervention, Project for People:

  • builds health care facilities and provides medical care;
  • builds schools and provides support to children;
  • starts arable land and livestock production;
  • facilitates microloans to small business activities;
  • fosters respect for the rights of women.

In this way, the association guarantees to the most vulnerable the right to health, healthy eating, education, employment, social recognition. Besides providing immediate benefits, the adopted model fosters the necessary conditions for the affected communities to participate actively in the improvement process triggered.


Project for People's projects are not charity: they put into play the skills of local staff, developing their professionalism. The promotion of local development is always implemented through projects designed, constructed and operated in close collaboration with local partners. In this way the Association develops actions consistently adhering to the real needs of communities.

It also promotes sustainable actions in the medium to long term through human resources and local economies.

To achieve these objectives, Project for People supports, promotes and encourages:

  • the presence of local structures for the provision of basic services, especially in health and education;
  • training of local professionals in the medical, educational, engineering, economics;
  • support the growth of local economic resources in agriculture and crafts.
