Mission, Values & Vision
Coprodeli’s founder, Padre Miguel Ranera, has labored relentlessly to help the poorest in Peru. His work touches the lives of more than 375,000 Peruvian children and families each year. Through Coprodeli’s founding in 1989, he formalized his efforts in community-based development, and created a model of social development that has grown from one of intervention to prevention.
Coprodeli & Coprodeli USA work together to make positive social change possible in Peru
To contribute to the development of establishing a dignified life for the poorest populations of the regions of Callao, Ica, and San Martin, Peru.
To support, through annual financial and volunteer assistance, the grassroots development work carried out by Coprodeli Peru.
Coprodeli takes its name from these core values:
Promoting the importance of community by building mutual support and respect.
Striving for total participation of the community toward its own well being.
Executing diverse programs promoting personal development and aimed at satisfying basic human needs. Focusing on comprehensive development with an emphasis on those most vulnerable.
Striving toward true freedom within a spiritual context.
Beneficiaries are empowered to become agents of change within their communities, contributing solutions to the issues they face. Coprodeli operates programs that move beyond meeting basic needs to promote long-term and lasting development. Examples include:
4 Urbanization Centers in the earthquake-devastated Ica Region; in the process of replicating the model in the San Martín jungle. Each urbanization center includes a Center for Social Services (CSS), which is comprised of a school, a medical clinic, and youth outreach center, covering the programmatic areas Education, Children at High Risk, Preventative Health, and Humanitarian Aid.
Microenterprise Industrial Parks in Ica and Pisco to promote local economic activity, generate employment opportunities, and address basic local needs. Sustainable economic development involves adolescents and adults and is a route towards positive peace.
Utilizing education and entrepreneurship as vehicles for development is key to this strategy; with an emphasis on incorporating beneficiaries as agents of development, local members lead the change in their own communities.
