NORTON TOWN COUNCIL HAS DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS THAT AID THE TOWN IN VARIOUS SECTORS AND THE FOLLOWING ARE THE MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS
Cesvi from Italy
Cesvi is an Italian humanitarian organisation, non-confessional, independent, participatory and non-profit foundation, founded in Bergamo in 1985.
Cesvi works on every continent to transform humanitarian aid into a chance to set up long-term projects promoting self-development and involvement among the beneficiary communities.
In the name Cesvi, the words cooperazione e sviluppo (cooperation and development) underline the fact that Cesvi’s philosophy is based on the idea ofgiving aid recipients a leading role, working together for their own natural benefit. Cesvi is strongly committed to making sure that international aid doesn’t become mere charity or is too influenced by donors’ self-interest.
Cesvi’s assistance to people in need around the world can be divided into three main categories:
- Immediate help to ensure survival and to overcome emergencies
- Rehabilitation and reconstruction of systems destroyed by war or natural calamities
- Cooperation programmes and projects for the development of underprivileged social groups and poor communities
In Italy and Europe, Cesvi runs campaigns to raise awareness and encourage a culture of worldwide solidarity, especially among youth, and to promote initiatives benefiting the most vulnerable.
The key sectors of Cesvi’s intervention are: health (particularly the fight against HIV/AIDS, Malaria and TB); support to children and young people; food security;emergency and post-emergency relief.

GIZ. Solutions that work.
We provide services worldwide in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ has over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including economic development and employment, energy and the environment, and peace and security. The diverse expertise of our federal enterprise is in demand around the globe, with the German Government, European Union institutions, the United Nations and governments of other countries all benefiting from our services. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is our main commissioning party, but we also work closely with the private sector, fostering successful interaction between development policy and foreign trade.
All these commissioning parties trust GIZ to generate ideas for political, social and economic change on their behalf, to develop these into concrete plans and to implement the envisaged change processes. Since we are a public-benefit federal enterprise, German and European values are central to our work. This makes us a reliable service provider that people can trust. Together with our partners, we work to deliver flexible and effective solutions that offer people better prospects and sustainably improve their living conditions.
The registered offices of GIZ are in Bonn and Eschborn. In 2014 our business volume exceeded two billion euros. Around 70 per cent of our local workforce of 16,410 people are national personnel working in over 130 countries. In our capacity as a recognised sending organisation, we currently have 785 development workers in action in partner countries. In addition, CIM, a joint operation of GIZ and the Federal Employment Agency, placed around 1,000 integrated and returning experts with local employers abroad in 2014 while providing them with financial support and advisory services.
