  • Students engage themselves in the South
    Medical students were given the opportunity to do an internship where they faced the challenge of a rudimentary medical practice. In 2018, a journalism competition took two students to Benin to produce a series of reports on our fonio cultivation project.
  • UNI4COOP
    This project brings together 4 French-speaking university NGOs. Born from the shared will to move forward together and to reinforce each other, this consortium opens up new perspectives for action and knowledge. It has notably resulted in a project on the preservation of mangroves.

  • The 1+1 action (matching funds)
    The projects of Louvain Coopération are fields of research, dissertations or doctorates (mutual health insurance, agroecology, etc.). Each project, like the research in social economy of the Chair of Social and Solidarity Economy in the South (CESSS), is the subject to synthesis and dissemination of knowledge.
  • L’action 1+1
    Every year the UCLouvain commits to doubling up to €35,000 in donations from its staff in favour of a given project. In 2017-2018, the donations will support literacy and mutual health insurance in South Kivu. In 2019-2020, donations will support mental health in South Kivu.
