INTERNATIONAL NONGOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION
Autonomy And Independence Is Very Important To "IWB Co-operative" And It's Members, Thus We Are Obligated To Operate Under The Seven Internationally Recognized Co-operative Principles Of Co-operative Economics.
Principle Four Of The Internationally Recognized Co-operative Principles Of The ICA, Was Mandated For Co-operatives To Be Autonomous And Independent. Therefore, Maintaining International Compliance, Nongovernment Status And Global Recognition Is Paramount.
SEVEN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED CO-OPERATIVE PRINCIPLES
1. Voluntary and Open Membership
Co-operatives are voluntary organisations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.
2. Democratic Member Control
Co-operatives are democratic organisations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary co-operatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and co-operatives at other levels are also organised in a democratic manner.
3. Member Economic Participation
Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their co-operative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the co-operative. Members usually receive limited compensation, if any, on capital subscribed as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing their co-operative, possibly by setting up reserves, part of which at least would be indivisible; benefiting members in proportion to their transactions with the co-operative; and supporting other activities approved by the membership.
4. Autonomy and Independence
Co-operatives are autonomous, self-help organisations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements with other organisations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their co-operative autonomy.
5. Education, Training and Information
Co-operatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. They inform the general public - particularly young people and opinion leaders - about the nature and benefits of co-operation.
6. Co-operation among Co-operatives
Co-operatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the co-operative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.
7. Concern for Community
Co-operatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.
The United Nations DESA Declared 2012 To Be The Year Of International Co-operatives, And IWB Is The Leading International Co-operative For Indigenous Peoples. The 2012 Prophesy Of The Olmecs Was About The Birth Of A New System, The New World Of Universal Water And The Rebirth Of "She-Ra" On December 21, 2012. The New World Is Simply A World Of Nongovernment And Most Are Still Codependent Upon Government.
According To The United Nations Department Of Public Information Criteria, INGO’s Should Operate Solely On A “Not For Profit” Basis And Have Tax Exempt Status. Not All INGOs Are Affiliated With The Department Of Public Information, Although Maintain The Right To Operate Solely On A “Not For Profit” Basis And Have Tax Exempt Status.
Most Are Unaware That U.S. Credit Unions Are “Not For Profit,” Cooperative, Tax Exempt Organizations, Rather Than A 501(C) 3 Nonprofit Organization. “Not-For-Profit” Is Totally Different Than “Nonprofit”, And U.S. Credit Unions Provide A Clear Distinction In Between The Two. A “Nonprofit” 501(C) 3, Powers Are Limited To The 1954 Ways And Means Bill And The Internal Revenue Code Of 1954. Thus, Nonprofit 501(C) 3 Fundraising Donor Organizations In The US Are Limited In Their Fundraising Support For INGOs, Consumer Cooperatives And Non US “Not For Profit” Organizations.
The Key To Autonomy And Independence Is The Private Sector And Economic Status. We Encourage New Donors To Support Us In Our Magnanimous And Global Initiative To Put An End To The 4,500 Children Who Are Dying Per Day Due To Unsanitary Deadly Water. What Greater And More Noble Cause Than This?
Water Is Scares In Pure And Uncontaminated Form And Most Of The World's Public Policy Water Supply Is Very Limited. So, Let Us Invest Into The Unlimited Supply Of Water From The Underworld. IWB Co-operative Is Constantly Being Asked About The Water, So Much Until We Are Unable To Meet The Demand For It. We Must Now Result To This Much Needed Fundraiser Extravaganza, To Raise The 1 Million Dollars Needed To Begin Our Global Water Initiative.
