Founded in 1976, Gret is an international development NGO governed by French law that works in the political sphere to provide sustainable and innovative solutions for the challenges of poverty and inequality. Gret is a professional NGO, through its vision of the development sector that it wants to enhance with innovative knowledge and solutions, through the involvement of populations in the Global South which it considers to be players for development, and through its practices.
