SETEM Navarra-Nafarroa is a development and a volunteer-based NGO. Its goal is to raise awareness in our society about North-South inequalities, to report their causes and promote social, individual and collective changes, to achieve a fairer and more solidary world. We believe in a culture of international solidarity that respects the dignity of the “peoples of the south” and is oriented to expose and eradicate the structural causes of inequalities.

Our fields of action are:
– Awareness and training through courses, solidarity camps, workshops, publications and campaigns
– The promotion of alternatives, mainly about Fair Trade, Ethical Finance and Solidarity Economy through campaigns, specialized programs and by selling Fair Trade products
– Solidarity with organizations of “countries of the South” through exchanges and cooperation.
