Creating links between cultures
BATIK International was created in 1998 by two immigrants’ granddaughters (Isabelle DEVAUX from Laos and Catherine MECHKOUR-DI MARIA from Algeria) in order to develop solidarity projects linked to their country of origin.
The organisation, symbolising a “return to the roots”, is one of the many results of immigration processes in France. “Here and there” is the identity building conflict that many immigrants’ descendants face, which can lead them to build active and fruitful bridges between France, Europe and their lands of origins. This ethic of exchange is respectful, mutual and fair, and remains until today at the heart of BATIK International’s identity.
Why "batik" ?
Batik is a flower pattern fabric, made from a printing process used in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Like a batik made from interwoven strands, the organisation creates links between people from Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean region
Choosing a fairer world
Everyone is unique in her/his traits and capacities. Combined with the ones of others, our differences contribute to develop a society based on diversity, respect and harmony. We believe that being able to achieve one’s own ambitions, while respecting other people’s, is a fundamental human right.
However, from one country to another, everyone has not the same opportunities to thrive. Whether you are rich or poor, healthy or sick, male or female, many discriminations can lead to unequal access to basic resources, notably in the awareness of one’s social and economic rights and the means to claim them.
Thanks to our partners’ support, we work together at empowering disadvantaged people and communities
, so they can become a force for changing their own life, revealing their skills and building a brighter future.
Since 1998, our core job consists in engineering, coordinating and monitoring development projects. Our work is based on creating lasting partnerships, and aligns with principles of reciprocity and equity. Gender and capitalisation approaches are at the centre of the actions we develop with our local and international partners.
Our projects meet the needs of vulnerable people in the following fields :
- Access to social and economic rights
(awareness and information sessions…)
- Socio-economic integration
(supporting entrepreneurship, trainings…)
We also provide technical support
to our peers (civil society organisations) so they can properly assist people in need (women, young people, migrants…). This technical support may include trainings, experience-sharing and an individual coaching regarding their expectations.
Involved in several networks of civil society organisations, we share our knowledge and good practices with other organisations on both sides of the Mediterranean. We also reflect together on the effective impacts of our common actions.
