MEDIC operates in 11 countries around the world through our international network of economic and community development affiliates, with each affiliate program tailored to each unique location.
Some affiliates are inclined more towards the role of sponsoring other affiliates with financial and human resources. Other affiliates implement programs directly in their area. In all cases, each affiliate depends on funding from donors and investors like you.
When planting a new affiliate in a chosen area, it is preferred to begin with natives from the ground up. This way each location takes on the personality of their particular region and culture, and each affiliate has the flavor of its own fresh vision. Each affiliate is trained independently. They all follow the principals of democratic governance, and although all operate under the framework of the overall mission, each one adopts their own mission strategy, fine tuned to local needs, all under the guidance and approval of the International Board.
