The CAMELEON network

CAMELEON Association France leads and fosters a network of international branches and partners.

CAMELEON’s international branches are associations under its name, lobbying for the association with local institutional and economic decision-makers, the general public and the media and fundraising to ensure the sustainability of the association’s actions and programs in the Philippines. CAMELEON currently has two branches: CAMELEON Switzerland and CAMELEON Luxembourg.

CAMELEON relies also on partner organizations that financially support its programs:
