In 2019, AIC Solidarité provided financial support for 19 actions implemented by AIC volunteers in 11 countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Two field visits were made to Guatemala and Panama. AIC Solidarité also took part in 2 AIC Training Seminars on the theme of “Responsibility and Service in Leadership”, the first one in the Philippines for the Asian volunteers, the second in Cameroon, for African volunteers. A cinema evening attended by almost 700 people enabled us to raise awareness among new supporters, as well as funds to support some grassroots actions.
Please see below the 2019 Activity Report approved by the General Assembly in June 2020.
Activities Report 2019 (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 bonnescauses.be and donorinfo.be.
