Comisión de Acción Social Menonita (CASM)

CASM aims to strengthen capacities of civil society in organisation, participation and advocacy, to contribute to building a process for sustainable local development. This strategy focuses on the creation and strengthening of structures of representation and negotiation in civil society, interacting with local governments in the framework of local-regional development processes and public policies of decentralisation, citizen participation, environment, gender, electoral law, children’s and adolescent’s rights, amongst others.

CASM promotes and strengthens, on the level of technical teams and other social actors, a system of ethical-christian values, that orientate process of human development upheld with a gender focus. CASM systematically develops competencies and skills in management and technical teams, as well as processes and methods needed to reach the goals set out in the strategic plans and projects.
