Brief history of ProSociedad

ProSociedad was born in 2009 when Carlos Bauche and Magdalena Rodríguez ventured into the development of
methodologies to incubate and strengthen OSCs. This is how the “Fortalecimiento de Capacidades de OSCs” program was born.

Later, in 2012, the “Responsabilidad Empresarial e Innovación Social” program was promoted to promote
mechanisms of social impact through financially, socially and environmentally viable solutions.

In 2015, ProSociedad grows significantly from the initiatives for the design of payment schemes to the
results (BIS) to improve the effectiveness of public financing, betting on the program “Incidencia en
políticas públicas y fortalecimiento de gobiernos”.

In 2017, the collaboration with PNUD began to promote the Open Government Agenda for Sustainable Development
In addition, ProSociedad creates and participates in advocacy networks to promote agendas such as
the economic empowerment of women and effective educational policies.

Finally in 2017 - 2018, ProSociedad opens a fourth program “Impulso a Modelos Basados en Evidencia” in
which programs with evidence of success are designed, piloted and evaluated in three themes: economic empowerment of
women “Co-meta”; prevention of youth violence "ROLE"; and early childhood development. Now, once
consolidated, to scale their impact, ProSociedad transfers capacities to local actors to implement them.
