Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fondation Vocation?

 

Fondation Vocation is an organization that believes in making a difference. Our programs address the root causes of personal and community stagnation. We believe in helping build lasting change through quality education and training programs. At the heart of what we do is the sustained progress of social, cultural and artistic development in the community.

 

What areas does Fondation Vocation work in?

 

The organization’s main program themes are the following: education, youth leadership, sustainable livelihood, and arts and culture.

 

Why has Fondation Vocation chosen to work in these particular fields?

 

Over the years, the organization has worked in various fields of personal and community development. All of these fields are congruent to our organization’s mission and dedication to actively engaging the community it belongs to, and helping in the personal development of the the people it serves. We have chosen a strategic, integrated, and sustainable approach to community and personal development by focusing on the needs and aspirations of our local population.

 

What framework does Fondation Vocation use for its programs?

 

Fondation Vocation’s core ideals rests in the concept of creating a shared value. This means that we believe  that economic and social progress are more strongly intertwined than many people otherwise believe. Social progress should go hand in hand with economic development, which is why our foundation strongly advocates the use of implementing development programs that target both the individual and the community. We seek to bridge the gap between community and individual development, with a strong multi-stakeholder approach.

 

Why should we participate in the organization’s programs?

 

Personal development is about taking the time and, making a commitment, to invest in your most important resource – yourself. On the other hand, community development is a way of boosting civil society by focusing on the actions of communities, and their viewpoints in the development of social, economic and environmental policy. By targeting both aspects at once, we believe that we could start making real change.
