Are Global. We live the globalization process...
we do not--and cannot--have a presence everywhere, we want work intensively in
Central America. We base our work on the benefits of globalization. However, our
work recognizes and addresses the negative aspects of globalization such as
injustice, inequalities and exclusion of many groups in the region. This
exclusion encompasses basic sources of income and access to the benefits of
knowledge, science and technology resulting in new forms of exploitation, trade
patterns and consequently new diseases related to ecological damage and poverty.
We collaborate in regional and international networks. We share our experience
with other countries in South America, Africa and other developing regions. We
also collaborate with partners in high income countries who have shown a genuine
interest and affirmative actions for contributing with our mission, programs and
