CELIM – Centro Laici Italiani per le Missioni – is an Non-governmental Organisation founded in 1954, registered in the OSC (Civil Society Organisations) book of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) and recognized by the European Union.
Our mission: Impact to change
Promoting lasting progress of communities by sharing self-determination processes and training with interventions of fixed duration
Our interventions are targeted and are the result of a careful analysis of available resources and local situation. Their effects are permanent and live on with the community, continuously changing it and being transformed with it.
Our projects are motivated by change-oriented strategies and trust in teamwork
MILKY: KENYA'S WHITE GOLD

Our staff always works in synergy with reputable local operators and organizations: the goal is to train personnel so that, at the end of the intervention, they are able to manage independently launched projects. Projects always have a specific timeframe, although CELIM keeps on monitoring them over time. Each project is made possible thanks to specialized and motivated people.
Our volunteers combine their experience and skills with their passion and their spirit of service, while respecting the cultures they encounter. We call them “artisans of development” because with precise, targeted actions and without intruding, they help to bring practical improvements to the lives of many people.

CELIM in the World
In Africa, the Balkans and the Middle East, we manage international cooperation projects with the contribution of numerous volunteers and professionals on the one hand and the collaboration of local authorities on the other.
In Italy we promote volunteering and organize courses in schools, meetings and creative workshops with the aim of bringing together different cultures, promoting their integration.
Guaranteeing human rights to migrant women workers in Lebanon and Ethiopia
Each activity, carried out abroad as in Italy, has the aim of triggering that change that will lead to a better and fairer future for everyone.
CELIM obtains tangible results because it sets concrete objectives; each time each of them is fulfilled, the vision of a different world appears more and more true. We deal with many issues because the needs are not all the same. We care about all the people who live in the contexts in which we operate and work for integral development.
This is our impact to change, this is the spirit with which we live it.
