The year in review

This year might have thrown us all for a few surprises but 2020 wasn’t all bad. Community Evolution and our partners pivoted to changes brought on by the pandemic.

What we do

Community Evolution is a community economic development organization that partners with cooperatives and community-based enterprises to help communities gain control of their local economies.

 

We are a registered charity that operates in Canada, Bolivia and Ecuador. We offer a customized facilitation process that combines community mobilization, capacity building and financial support for social impact.

 

We envision a world where people work together to build sustainable and empowered communities.

Where we work

Bolivia

In Bolivia, we partner with community enterprises in the area of sustainable food production. The majority of the associations’ members are indigenous women working the land to grow mostly vegetables.

Canada

Our partners in Canada dedicate their attention to growing food that is safe and healthy. Besides working to protect the land, they create income-generating opportunities for local communities.

Ecuador

In Ecuador, our partners are involved in both sustainable food production and community tourism. This approach diversifies their source of income and improves livelihoods and economic prosperity.

How to get involved

There are several ways to help Community Evolution support all these incredible community enterprises.
