IDEAS has a long-standing partnership with a like-minded, local development organization working to bring about transformation in the lives of people in North Africa. They focus on those who are marginalized, vulnerable or disadvantaged. Areas of project focus are rural populations, people with disabilities, individuals and families in vulnerable situations, and palliative care.

We believe in a transformational approach to development and aim for a process of positive change in values, attitudes, and relationships. We believe that people, who have a disability, are financially disadvantaged, in prison, or marginalised by society, need to be affirmed, equipped and encouraged. We believe that participation in decision making, goal setting and planning, will increase peoples’ ownership and commitment. We believe that in selfless service we go a little further, endure a little longer and look a little closer at the people we serve. We are looking for an international development expert with a heart for transformation to join our work.
