In 2018, we provided financial support for 20 actions started by AIC volunteers in 10 countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Four field visits were made to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Madagascar. A cinema evening attended by more than 600 people enabled us to raise awareness among new supporters, as well as funds to support some grassroots actions.
Please see below the 2018 Activity Report approved by the General Assembly on 9th May 2019.
Activities Report 2018 (only in French)
Our priority is to support local AIC volunteers in developing their actions in the fight against poverty, taking care to promote their values and strengths. We have developed a 2016-2020 strategic plan and an activity calendar to ensure that AIC Solidarité can operate well. This benchmark tool sets out our vision and mission, our values, our objectives and what we do to achieve them.
AIC Solidarité Strategic Plan (only in French)
Our financial resources come exclusively from private contributions. AIC Solidarité does not receive public grants. The grassroots actions that AIC Solidarité supports are co-financed by:
- National member associations of the AIC network
- Private donors, in Belgium or elsewhere
- Organising fundraising events
- Private foundations and trusts, in Belgium and elsewhere
AIC Solidarité complies with the Code of Conduct of the AERF, ‘Association pour l’Ethique dans la Récolte de fonds’ (Association for Ethical Fundraising). Donors have the right to information. This means that at least once a year they will receive information about how the funds collected have been used.
Every year, our accounts are checked for accuracy by a registered auditor. Our accounts and balance sheets are published with the Belgian National Bank (BNB) and may be found at:
