Overall strategy

Themes and sectors
GEOMOUN wishes to keep and deepen the issues which it has been working on since its creation in 2000: improving the rights of the child in the name of civic and responsible social integration, both in the North and the South.

The emphasis on education (from basic education to professional training based on social education) and on the protection of children and young people, as defined above, makes it possible to better define GEOMOUN's intervention in the South.

The emphasis on raising children's awareness in the North of their rights in order to make them active, sensitive and responsible citizens makes it possible to develop projects that are entirely in line with and reinforce projects in the South. The interaction between North and South through the network that will be created between schools and youth associations will help our objectives related to the promotion of interculturality and children's participation.

True pioneers who are committed to another, better Haiti, our three partner associations RESEDH and TIMKATEC give hope to hundreds of families to live in dignity and to help their children grow up in a promising environment. They put Haitians at the heart of their own change. It is in this community development approach focused on strengthening, training and accompanying beneficiaries in the field that we support them.

-> Themes: Children's rights (education, protection, participation), women's rights, community development, interculturality, promotion of peace, citizenship education.

Geographical areas


GEOMOUN is currently present in Belgium and Haiti, in addition to the countries with which it has established links through schools participating in development education projects. For the next ten years, GEOMOUN has decided to focus on Haiti in terms of its southern projects, while leaving a door open to partners who are and will be part of development education projects. It is currently Ivory Coast, Senegal, Togo, Peru... The implementation of a network within development education projects should enable other countries to join, as defined in the strategic objective expanded upon below.

SOUTH -> Haiti

NORTH (ED) -> Opening to as many participating countries as possible
