|Organisation d'accueil :||Swedish Co-operative Centre|
|Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil :||The Swedish Cooperative Centre, SCC, was created by the Swedish Cooperative movement in 1958 in order to contribute to improved living conditions of poor women and men in developing countries, through an effort of mutual cooperation and collaboration. The organisation's vision is a world free from poverty and injustice.
The primary target group for SCC is poor women and men mainly in rural areas, who are members or potential members of democratic organisations or informal groups working for common goals. The extremely poor generally lack opportunities and organisation. Therefore SCC works in partnership, supporting mobilisation and development of member-based organisations with the aim of indirectly and with a long-term perspective improving the lives of the poor.
Information and communication are equally important tools to achieve long-term and sustainable development. For this reason, SCC also works to mould public opinion and gain public support for people based development.
