France Libertés supported hundreds of field projects during the last 30 years.
The projects support has always been a bilateral relation for the Foundation. Of course its role is to support financially public interests actions, however the Foundation never rejected our partner’s ability to surprise us and to teach us various concepts and practices used elsewhere.
The projects support helps organizations in the implementation of actions for human rights and protection of the commons. It means a financial support and an assistance to the communities working to get an access to their richness (specifically water) and to protect their way of living and their traditional knowledges.
We select awareness, informative, abilities reinforcement, advocacy, management system’s setting up, preservation or reinforcement-oriented projects. These kinds of projects suffer from a lack of visibility and interest from the funders. France Libertés wants to give the opportunity to these organizations to make their field projects made into reality and valued.
We want to promote visionary solutions in order to highlight alternative societies models which are more humanistic and ecological to rethink the dominant paradigm.
