Mandat : Canadian Crossroads International is an international volunteer cooperation agency that brings together citizens and organizations in Canada and developing countries in order to reduce poverty, combat HIV/AIDS and promote women's rights. With almost 50 years of experience, CCI works to create a more equitable and sustainable world by engaging and strengthening individuals, organizations and communities through mutual learning, solidarity and collective action. The foundation of our work is the development of long- term partnerships between like-minded organizations in Canada and in the South. Within the framework of these three-way partnerships (CCI, Southern organization and Canadian organization), we carry out activities to build partnership, develop organizational capacity and engage the public - with volunteer exchange (North-South, South-North and South-South) being the primary means to achieve our goals. We believe the engagement of the Canadian public is an essential element of this approach and work in this respect with organizations and individuals throughout Canada.

Description du stage : The intern's work is part of a partnership agreement between CCI and ANED, specifically within the sector of community economic development. ANED works with rural communities of Bolivia, providing micro credit, capacity building in human rights, women's rights, governance, administration and other issues or needs brought up by the rural communities. In order to improve their work, ANED is building up its own internal capacity building process, building up the capacities of its credit officers and social development staff.

In Canada
There is an initial two-week period in Canada, prior to traveling to Bolivia. During this time, the intern will attend CIL and CCI pre-departure training, and will further be engaged in outreach programs, particularly with respect to the partnership, with support from CCI. The intention is to introduce the intern to community economic development as it is understood and carried out in Western Canada, and to develop a greater sense of partnership activities and the role of public engagement within the partnership.

Upon returning to Canada, there is another two-week period, which includes a debriefing session, and during which the intern will be involved in public engagement activities in his or her province, in coordination with CCI. The intern will be expected to lead public discussions on the role that micro credit can play in community social and economic development in developing countries, and particularly in Bolivia. The intern will also be expected to contribute to the continued development of the partnership, presenting recommendations on the role of interns within the partnership.

Overseas
The goal of the internship is to design a capacity building system within the organization, which allows learning to be increasingly integrated into the actions of the team, both in the national office and in its outreach offices.

The work will include:

- Assessing ANED's needs for internal capacity building
- Designing a capacity building program
- Creating instruments for the integration of learnt lessons and expressed needs into organizational policies, planning, monitoring and evaluation mechanisms
- Designing appropriate methodological instruments, manuals and documents for capacity building
- Designing adult training manuals.
