In line with its own Mission, Progetto Sud has been promoting development cooperation activities in different countries around the world for more than 30 years, through an integrated approach which provides for the involvement of Public Institutions, (profit and non-profit) Private Actors, Civil Society Organizations (including Social Partners), in such a way as to ensure the constant adaptation of programs and initiatives to the evolving requirements and priorities of national and international operational contexts.

  • to promote economic, social, technical and cultural progress of people and workers who live in conditions of disadvantage and marginality in Developing Countries
