IDEAL is organized under the 7 Cooperative Principles

Cooperatives are not new and (no matter what country) operate according to the same core principles and values, adopted by the International Co-operative Alliance in 1995.


These principles are based on the first modern cooperative founded in Rochdale, England in 1844.
