PROCLADE Internazionale ONLUS
The NGO PROCLADE Internazionale Onlus is a Foundation established in the year 2006 in order to support the work of the Claretian Missionaries and to give guidance in the presentation of projects to donor agencies. PROCLADE Internazionale Onlus belongs to a network of NGOs based in various countries actively cooperating with the Claretian Missionaries in the developing world.
The mission of PROCLADE Internazionale is to assist, together with the Claretian counterparts, in the development of the most disadvantaged peoples, in the promotion of their human well-being, the integral development of the individuals, solidity of communities, justice and peace. PROCLADE’s major social areas of involvement are those where the Claretians are actively involved:
Among pastoral projects we find the following:
PROCLADE Internazionale works as a link between the donor and the beneficiary group, constantly cooperating with the local managers both for project identification/formulation and for the production of financial, narrative and evaluation reports.
PROCLADE Internazionale , thanks to the work of a full-time projects coordinator, provides the expertise in the identification, formulation and presentation of project proposals, supporting the missionaries in all phases of the project cycle, searching for funding opportunities and presenting projects to donors.
Activities are carried out in the respect of the civil and social rights of the citizens of developing countries, for the promotion of human development, justice and peace. PROCLADE Internazionale contributes to the creation of a culture of solidarity by cooperating with other actors that share the same commitment for the promotion of the well-being of the person and of the society.
PROCLADE Internazionale works in close cooperation with the local project managers who are, in turn, recipients of the needs of the beneficiaries, the real owners of any Claretian social project.
