What We Do
SiKanda contributes to the creation of a more just world for all, implementing projects whose goals align with the United Nations Millennium Development Goals
SiKanda uses participatory methodologies, employing tools such as Project Life Cycle Management and logic frameworks. All SiKanda projects begin with a comprehensive study of the situation and the context of the beneficiaries. SiKanda’s goals are to respond to real needs, create an incentive for endogenous development, and guarantee a process of self-improvement for the communities. To fulfill this mission, SiKanda works in the areas of Health, Economic Diversification, Awareness and Practice of Civil Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Protection of the Environment.
