PerspActive Is a Dutch cooperative of four organisations working in development cooperation. Empowering people in developing countries is our main goal.

Bridging generations is the aim of PerspActive; putting young people at the heart of its future programmes and campaigns. What will the world look like for future generations and how can we anticipate now on a sustainable world for all? What are the prospects amid major changes such as rapid population growth, urbanization, climate change and food security? PerspActive will focus on sustainability; employability and working skills; enabling environment and attitude, with the world in 2030 as our anchor point.

The shared Christian values of its members, extensive experience, knowledge, network and enthusiasm will significantly contribute to address these questions through collaboration, vision and involvement in development programmes. Therefore PerspActive is a complementary cooperative with strength and viability, which will increase its collective benefits and the effectiveness in its goals to improve people’s lives.

The members are: Dorcas, Edukans, Red een Kind, and Woord en Daad.

PerspActive wishes to actively promote perspectives for the next generation. Our top priority is employment for young people and therefore we will concentrate on sustainable economic growth; especially in agriculture.
