Cooperazione Internazionale (COOPI)

Cooperazione Internazionale (COOPI)

Father Barbieri on 15 April 1965 founded COOPI. COOPI an Italian international cooperation has evolved in many aspects. The story of COOPI dates back to 1961, when a young Jesuit priest, Vincenzo Barbieri, in order to go on a missionary mission to Chad, was sent to study at the Faculty of Theology in Lyon, France.

The cultural environment in France, Father Barbieri discovered was much more open-minded and lively than the one in Italy. He came into contact with international secular movements in Lyon that were engaged in voluntary work in developing countries for many years. Barbieri in 1962 turned down the opportunity to travel as a missionary. He later returned to Milan, to train volunteers who were ready to travel to developing countries. Secularity in missionary activities was introduced by Father Barbieri.

A Professional Team

The structure of COOPI organization consists of six Offices: Human Resources; Control, Monitoring, and Audit; Private Partnership; Administration and Finance; Program Quality and Innovation; Philanthropy and Individual Donors Fundraising. These are complemented by several functions, such as External Relations, General Secretary, Advocacy and Institutional Communication. All of these offices report to the Director.

Two Regional Coordinators and Area Managers of four geographical areas also report to the Director. The Regional Coordination of the Middle East was established in 2019, while the Regional Coordination for the Caribbean and Latin America was established in 2016.

Within development and emergencies

COOPI operates in contexts of socio-political or environmental vulnerability and extreme poverty, implementing the Linking Relief, Rehabilitation, and Development (LRRD) approach. This gives COOPI the chance to provide long-term and sustainable responses, ensuring continuity between humanitarian aid, security, and development.

Humanitarian emergencies

COOPI responds efficiently to the urgent needs of the population, thanks to the experience and the ability to find innovative solutions. This is particularly so in the war-torn Middle East and in the areas hit by Boko Haram violence in the Lake Chad Region of West Africa. COOPI carries out a model of multi-country intervention. This allows them to meet the needs of refugee communities and the displaced and in a timely and coordinated manner.

The humanitarian situation in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria is increasingly deteriorating. This is because of the conflict between government forces and the Boko Haram set.

The recently published report of IOM shows that there are over 1.8 million IDPs, the majority of whom are located in Yobe and Borno states. Over 17 million people who are affected by the conflict have a shortage of food. Research also shows that over 3 million young people have dropped out of school and over 500,000 children suffering from severe malnutrition.

COOPI we learn has been responding to emergencies in some of the North-Eastern states of Nigeria since July 2014. They respond in the way of protecting minors affected by the conflict, food distribution, education, and malnutrition prevention and care.
