Who We Are

WeWorld-GVC

WeWorld-GVC is an Italian independent organisation born from the merger between GVC Ngo (founded in Bologna in 1971) and WeWorld Foundation (founded in Milan in 1999), with the aim of increasing the impact of their Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid projects in 29 countries worldwide, including Italy.
Together WeWorld and GVC carry out 128 projects reaching over 2,4 million direct beneficiaries and 12,3 million indirect beneficiaries.

Children, women and youth, actors of change in every community, are the protagonists of WeWorld-GVC projects and campaigns in the following fields of intervention: human rights (gender equality, prevention and contrast of violence against women and children, migrations), humanitarian aid (prevention, aid and reconstruction), food security, water and sanitation, health, education and learning, socio-economic development, environmental protection, global citizenship education and international volunteering.

Marco Chiesara is WeWorld-GVC President and Dina Taddia is CEO and General Manager.

MISSION

We work for girls, boys, women and youth, actors of change in every community for a fairer and more inclusive world.
We support people overcoming emergencies and we guarantee a life with dignity, opportunities and a better future through human and economic development programs (in the framework of the 2030 Agenda).

VISION

We strive for a better world where everyone, especially women and children, must have equal opportunities and rights, access to resources, to health, to education and to decent work.
A world in which the environment is a common good to be respected and preserved; in which war, violence and exploitation are banned. A world where nobody is left behind.

The CPA Inititative Community

The Community Protection Approach (CPA) is based on an ongoing action-research initiative connecting dedicated experts and staff actively involved in the field, and external University and Research institutions and experts. All staff, part of the CPA community, works in the involvement of affected population in different countries to constantly review, update and improve the methodology.

The CPA community is composed by the members of the Integrated Protection Development and Analysis (IPDA) Area, the International Advocacy, Policy and Innovation Area (IAPIA), and by the staff working on CPA in the WeWorld and partners' missions.

Integrated Protection Development and Analysis (IPDA) Area

The Integrated Protection Development and Analysis (IPDA) area is a department of WeWorld, created in August 2019. The IPDA is the consolidation of a dedicated Task Force for the capitalization of the Community Protection Approach. The overarching aim is to enhance the quality of WW’s work in the areas of established expertise: CPA Methodology, Integrated Protection (Child Protection, GBV, Data Protection), Data Analysis and Digital Solutions

The International Advocacy, Policy and Innovation Area (IAPIA)

The International Advocacy, Policy and Innovation Area (IAPIA) was formed to consolidate the expertise of We World into coordinated actions to push for change in behaviours, actions and policies. The IAPIA keeps abreast of the latest innovations that impact humanitarian and development operations, whilst actively working on policy and advocacy both within the organization and with the larger international aid community as a whole.

The International Advocacy, Policy and Innovation Area (IAPIA) Objectives:
