The Argentine Network for International Cooperation (RACI, for its Spanish acronym) is a network consisting of more than 130 civil society organizations (CSOs) from Argentina that works constantly to connect local civil society organizations with agents, both local and international, that carry out social investment for development in the country.
RACI's goal is to create a space for dialogue and exchange where the actors willing to invest finance and social capital in the country can meet the organizations directly, according to their different specializations, and then together contribute, in an articulated and sustainable way, to the social transformation of Argentina.
Throughout its ten years of experience, RACI has established strong ties with institutions in the public and private sector, the Academia and philanthropic foundations and, above all, with the agents of International Cooperation, with whom the Network has build the greater work experience.
RACI considers that being a Network integrated by a heterogeneity of organizations is the best response to tackle, with a comprehensive approach, with the country's problematics. For this reason, the Network seeks to democratize the access to the sources of resources; to produce and disseminate information in relation to the available sources of aid from the various actors that invest socially, and to develop and optimize the CSOs capacities and resources in the search of strengthening the sector.
Networking is key to enhance the impact of the actions taken in the country.
