Solidarity Fund

The KM Solidarity Fund is made possible through the contribution of every cooperative member who donate towards this cause, thus supporting other members who may face difficult personal circumstances with upwards of 3 months’ salary, subject to the availability of funds. An independent board made up of 3 trusted professionals endorsed by Koperattivi Malta's council, will regulate the fund and evaluate the requests.

Our Principles 7

Voluntary and Open Membership

Read more

Cooperatives are voluntary organisations, open to all people able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

Democratic Member Control

Read more

Cooperatives are democratic organisations controlled by their members – those who buy the goods or use the services of the cooperative – who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions.

Member Economic Participation

Read more

Members contribute equally to, and democratically control, the capital of the cooperative. This benefits members in proportion to the business they conduct with the cooperative rather than on the capital invested.

Autonomy and Independence

Read more

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organisations controlled by their members. If the co-op enters into agreement with other organizations or raises capital from external sources, it is done so based on terms that ensure democratic control by the members and maintains the cooperative’s autonomy.

Education, Training, and Information

Read more

Cooperatives provide education and training for members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperative. Members also inform the general public about the nature and benefits of cooperatives.

Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Read more

Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative model by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

Concern for Community

Read more

While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of communities through policies and programs accepted by the members.
