Carmelite Development Promotion

PROKARDE is the NGO of the Carmelite Missionary Carmel in Europe.

It was founded in Vitoria in 1996 with the aim of giving legal support to all the solidarity work that we sisters and lay people carry out in Spain in favour of mission projects in third world countries.

Until 2003, its sphere of action was centred on the Basque Country. That year we applied for registration in the National Register of Associations, becoming national in scope, and in 2004 we registered with the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECI).

In 2007, five Delegations were registered in the Ministry of the Interior: Andalusia, Castile and Leon, Catalonia, Madrid and Navarre which meant extending the management space in the autonomous areas. In 2017, the Delegation of the Basque Country was created with its headquarters in San Sebastian.

Over the years, PROKARDE's funds have been used to subsidise development projects in favour of the poorest and most excluded. Our aim is for the projects to help people to overcome the precarious situation of marginalisation in which they find themselves, to promote their dignity and to be agents of change in their environment.
