Thus, AID Central Coordination and the network members:

  • Support the development of equality-generating initiatives that fight against social and professional exclusion; 
  • Consider the local economic, social and cultural realities in which these projects take place;  
  • Give the initiators of a project the means to keep ownership of it throughout its lifetime;
  • Ensure that they promote projects that strengthen democracy, awareness and citizen participation for all.

Our ethical charter

The ethical charter sets the ethical rules and safeguards that are the AID network’s own. Its aim is to guarantee a treatment that is a s fair as possible to all users of our centres.

The AID network’s training centres have always refused to be mere “dual society providers”. To “be political” and act with organised bodies is therefore essential.
