Created in 1973, the French international solidarity association Partage works in partnership with local civil society organisations in the fields of education, health/nutrition, protection against abuse and community development to ensure the overall development of children and respect for their fundamental rights.
On the occasion of a forum organised by Partage in France in June 2007, the Partage Lamako network was formed, bringing together all of Partage’s partner organisations throughout the world, i.e. 32 organisations from 20 countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia, Near-East and Europe.
Following a review of its 10 years of existence, Partage and its partners were able to reaffirm their willingness to work as a network, a work that is perfectly in line with the mode and spirit of collaboration between Partage and its local partners: an equitable, sustainable and reciprocal exchange relationship. Networking makes it possible to further strengthen this horizontality sought after in the partnership relationship.
It is in this project to deepen its work that the Partage network has been given a new look: new name and new logo, both proposed and voted by the network members, but above all new objectives.
Birth of the network
The Partage RISE network brings together Partage and all of Partage’s partner organisations. Any new partner of Partage becomes a member of the RISE network. Membership is lost at the end of the partnership with Partage
The main mission of the Partage RISE network is to strengthen the capacities of its members to intervene in favour of the defence of children’s rights and the development of children, young people, their families and communities.
The relations between the members of the network are based on dialogue, exchange of knowledge, sharing of experiences, participation, solidarity, respect for each other’s independence and diversity in order to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of the most vulnerable groups, in particular children and adolescents.
The network gets a new website
