LINCCO partners with local non-governmental organizations in developing countries to fund skills training programs that lead to gainful employment, greater self-sufficiency for families and better health services for their community.
VISION, MISSION & VALUES
Build a better future in developing countries
through skills training
The Institute for Culture and Co-operation, LINCCO, gives Canadians the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people in developing countries, helping them gain skills that allow them to contribute to their family and society. It is a registered Canadian charity founded in 1984.
We believe that the long-term solution to poverty lies in skills development and education that allow individuals to contribute to their personal and family development, as well as to that of their society.
Character formation and civic virtues are key parts of skills development and education.
The family is the basic building block of society. Every attempt to contribute to society must support families.
Men and women are entitled to the same respect, which includes equal valuing of work within and outside the home.
LINCCO’S activities operate according to Judeo-Christian values and the social teaching of the Catholic Church.
