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
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.
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.
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.
