MCLI Co-Operative Partners


Vision & Mission

Ex-Change’s mission is to stimulate entrepreneurship as a sustainable and powerful means against poverty in developing economies. To achieve this goal, Ex-Change aims at providing companies, organisations and training centres in the target countries with entrepreneurial expertise and global networks from the North.

With a view to achieving sustainable and measurable growth of local enterprises, Ex-Change wants to be the reference in the direct exchange of knowledge and experience between the North and the target countries with an emphasis on respect for people, profit & planet. In this way Ex-Change wants to contribute to the economic development in the area which requested support.

Increasingly, we build on insights obtained by the beneficiary or through co-operation with other initiatives both in the North and in the target countries. It is therefore important that the continuity and efficiency in our missions remain of key importance. Based on predetermined qualitative indicators, we aim at an annual increase in the number of projects without jeopardising the quality of our operations.

The objective of our interventions should be one of the following:
  • The improvement of the production and/or products, the quality, efficiency, the management of the organisation as a whole, the infrastructure, etc;
  • The improvement of the qualifications or skills of the local personnel, their labour conditions and social environment;
  • The creation of employment opportunities and/or safeguarding of the current jobs;

Target countries and sectors

One approach to achieve high-quality operations is to join forces in certain regions and countries where projects can be executed. At least one coordinator is assigned to each country to allow him/her to focus exclusively on the country in question.

The list of target countries can be revised annually and can be modified depending on the number of projects, the quality, the local operation, the economic and political situation, etc.

There are no limits as to how many sectors are listed, as long as a qualified expert can be found for any specific application. A coordinator will be provided for every sector for which we receive applications.
