ECODE has been working on the field of mental health in development countries during the last 10 years. During this period we have helped local NGOs to start with mental health centers, rehabilitation structures, and also gave training to adults on how to provide better care services for the mentally ill people. With APPC and the municipality of Fagaras, both in Romania, we have helped to rehabilitate a school and to start with a center to empower local NGOs.

ECODE is an organization specialized in the Management of the Project Cycle on Cooperation for Development. Our aim is to find solutions for the problems faced by actors in International Cooperation in projects identification or management. We are a multidisciplinary team, with ample experience both in the work with International Development actors from the North (namely NGOs, private and public financiers, international bodies), and from the South (namely local governments, social organisations and communities).

ECODE stemmed from the encounter of people with varied and complementary backgrounds in the field of International Cooperation and the business world, whose motivation was that of giving priority to quality in Cooperation work along with professional rigour and ethical commitment. ECODE has worked in nearly all Cooperation-related areas such as internal performance, identification of projects, formulation or monitoring, design and impact evaluations, or preparation of communication materials.

We have worked on projects in 35 countries, with particular intensity in Guatemala, Romania, Cambodia and Ghana. In our collaboration with the SISTERS HOSPITALLERS OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS we have developed significant experience and knowledge in the mental health field, especially with older people.
