the artisans of humanitarian aid
Founded in 1991 by Christian RAYMOND, PARTENAIRES, an international NGO, works in the poorest regions of the world. It accompanies disadvantaged people towards greater autonomy, while respecting their cultures and the environment.
Our fields of action:
– Education and professional training
– Food security
– Health, through hygiene and drinking water
Our areas of intervention
POver the years, PARTNERS has conducted programmes on four continents – Nigeria, Brazil, Bolivia, India, Moldova, Mozambique and Myanmar (for 20 years) – and has continued to do so for over 20 years in Bangladesh. We also work in Ecuador, Haiti, Malawi and Tanzania..
- Volunteer work is at the heart of PARTENAIRESIn France the organisation relies entirely on volunteer work, which helps us maintain operation costs at a minimum, and allows us to guarantee donors their contributions are used as efficiently as possible.
From a total of 100€, 94€ go directly to our actions in the field, which means that less than 6% are used in administration, fundraising and communication.
- on field
To ensure meaningful and lasting results, the projects are based on local, qualified teams.
They are at first supervised by a Western volunteer, whose mission is to provide the tools and the know-how necessary for a smooth running of the structure, but also to control quality and ensure the best use of available resources.

Our volunteer work
PARTNERS’ work in France is based on volunteers, which helps us to keep our operating costs among the lowest, guaranteeing donors maximum impact from their donations.
Out of every 100€ received, 92€ goes directly to our actions on the ground. And in this modest 8% of operating and administration costs are also included the collection and communication costs!
The aim of our programmes is to achieve the final autonomy of the beneficiaries. In the long term, local teams take up the torch and appropriate the spirit and forms of action of PARTNERS. In many places, the project lives on through our presence.
In the long term, PARTNERS means
- more than 30 years of experience and 6 awards at the Humanitarian Forum
- more than 8% of operating costs, all inclusive
- the guarantee of a maximum impact of donations.
- Respect for crops, environmental requirement
Respect for local cultures is an essential ingredient for the success of our actions. Our projects always take into account local peculiarities and habits. Similarly, the environmental requirement leads us to seek solutions and processes of their own.
- In the long run
The end goal of our programs is to reach our beneficiaries’ autonomy. Local teams gradually take over and adopt the spirit, methods and actions of PARTENAIRES. As already observed in many instances, the project then goes on independently from our presence in the country.
