We carry out development cooperation projects alongside our local counterparts. We work together with local institutions to identify the needs of the community and respond to them by designing, gathering funding, implementing, and evaluating development cooperation projects.
Since we began working, our local partners have been:
Algeria, Tindouf refugee camps (Sahara)
Smara Special Education Center, Tindouf Refugee Camps, Algeria
Djan-Djan Community Radio / Tebenkan Community Multimedia Center, Guinea-Bissau
Action for the integrated development of the Bijagós Islands
National Emergency Center
FLACSO (Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences)
UCATEBA (Catholic Technological University of Barahona)
PYMES Center of UCATEBA
INTEC (Technological Institute of Santo Domingo)
In addition, our relationships with local organizations allow us to be connected to realities closer to home and to participate in initiatives happening in Granada’s own neighborhoods. For that reason, ASAD participates in the following initiatives:
ASAD is a member of the Coordinadora de ONGD de Granada, coming together with local organizations for campaigns such as Pobreza Cero and playing an active role in the group for development education, as well as the group for communication.
The Coordinadora Andaluza de ONGD unites the voices of many third-sector organizations whose headquarters are in Andalusia. It is a respected representative that looks out for the interests of social and nonprofit institutions.
As part of our commitment to economic alternatives, ASAD is an associate member of the Mercao Social y Cultural de Granada, a space for the sale of local and organic products, as well as awareness-raising activities and cultural events.
The Foro andaluz de Comunicación, Ciudadanía y Educación is positioning itself as a legitimate spokesperson to influence the audiovisual policy of Andalusia, promoting citizens’ rights to information and communication.
ASAD works with a wide network of partner organizations with whom we carry out various activities and new initiatives in the city of Granada. Here we offer direct links to their websites, which is the best way to learn more about them:
Animasur, CAU (Centro de Artes Urbanas) y Escuela Internacional de Circo y Teatro CAU
ASAD has been working for over 7 years with the street theater company Animasur, as well its urban arts center, CAU, and its school of circus and theater. Together, we put on activist performances and carry out training in performance arts for social change.
As a fundamental part of our work in communication for social transformation, ASAD has been collaborating since 2012 with 4000 Flores, an organization dedicated to photography (including training and organization of cultural events), that in 2014 founded the social photography school La Ampliadora.
4000 Flores also created and offered us a space in the PA-TA-TA Festival, an international photography festival in Granada that has supported our social audiovisual competition EDITA since its beginning.
