WHAT IS MISSION INCLUSION?
It is a Canadian NGO based in Montreal, Canada and created in 1948 by Ferdinand Léger. It supports innovative and mobilizing actions in Quebec and around the world (Africa, Asia and Latin America) for the well-being of the most vulnerable and/or marginalized people. The organisation’s objective is to move towards a fairer world, where no one is left behind and where each individual finds his or her place and participates in the community. The NGO has supported more than 29 million people in its 74-year history.
WHAT DOES MISSION INCLUSION DO?
Mission Inclusion responds optimally to the needs of populations affected by humanitarian crises. It also equips its partners to develop their self-reliance and capacity to cope with future crises. It provides monetary and humanitarian responses to vulnerable families affected by violence and supports women in precarious situations or in contexts of violence. The organisation provides humanitarian assistance to displaced populations by meeting primary needs and carries out prevention activities, particularly against human trafficking and prostitution.

WHERE DOES MISSION INCLUSION OPERATE?
Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Canada, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Mali, Nigeria, Peru.
WHAT IS THE SITUATION IN THESE COUNTRIES?
In Bolivia, the country faces significant problems of poverty and malnutrition. Indigenous people face significant challenges related to climate change (drought, poor soil and livestock quality). The precariousness of living conditions and food insecurity explain the alarming signs of chronic malnutrition, with one child in three showing signs of malnutrition. In Burkina Faso, the country is grappling with a complex regional crisis on its border with Mali, which affects nearly 1.2 million people, just over half of whom are food insecure. In Cameroon, the country is facing a humanitarian crisis that directly affects nearly 2.1 million people. In Canada, thousands of people in Quebec are experiencing difficulties due to loss of employment, physical or mental health problems, homelessness. In Ethiopia, patriarchy is a critical issue for women in the country, particularly because it exposes them to unequal access to resources, insecurity and economic dependence. In Haiti, women and adolescent girls suffer from a lack of sexual and reproductive health rights as they do not always have the right to choose their own partner, marital status or whether or not to have children. They face systemic discrimination, stigma and gender-based violence. In Mali, the country has experienced a food crisis and inequality due to significantly lower than expected rainfall. In Nigeria, the country is facing a crisis caused by Boko Haram and has claimed thousands of lives by creating massive civilian displacement. 7.1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and 2.7 million are food insecure.
