We are a Colombian non-profit organization of the private regime, created in 2000 within the framework of the Bilateral Agreement of the Initiative for the Americas.
Fondo Acción knows and believes in the power and creativity of the ideas that communities and community organizations have and how, with the support and technical and financial support, the way in which the world lives can be transformed. In these years of work have shown that the multiple environmental and social problems facing the population can be addressed – successfully from the local momentum. Thus, we are not the ones who give solutions to problems, we are the ones who facilitate that the communities transform their reality for a better planet.
Today we know that investments in environment and childhood produce the best returns for our society and that is why our activity has been concentrated in these two areas. Thus, we have opted to build innovative and high-value solutions on vital issues such as: sustainable rural development, conservation, climate change, and the protection and development of children and adolescents, with an emphasis on early childhood.
The processes and procedures that we apply for the administration, control, monitoring and accompaniment of investments in environmental and childhood programs and projects are incorporated in our Quality Management System (QMS). The QMS has been certified since 2008 by Bureau Veritas Quality International Colombia and complies with the international quality standard ISO 9001-2008.
Additionally, we are affiliated with the Network of Environmental Funds of Latin America and the Caribbean, REDLAC, a learning community comprised of more than 20 Environmental Funds in the region.
