ALDA is continuously supporting activities in the field of active European citizenship and international solidarity.
In this perspective, ALDA has been granted a special fund called FONJEP ECSI – Education for Citizenship and International Solidarity – for the triennium 2021-2023.
Behind this acronym lies the Cooperation Fund for Youth and Popular Education, funded by the French Ministry of Europe and International Affairs and the French Development Agency (AFD). The aim is to encourage individual and collective contribution to the construction of a just, united and sustainable world.
The grant will serve to encourage individual and collective contribution to the construction of a just, united and sustainable world
Thus, the programme of FONJEP ECSI co-finances a job in international solidarity or popular education associations in order to develop awareness-raising, information and training activities for the general public on issues of citizenship, international solidarity and development.
This recognition is of crucial importance for ALDA, which works hard for local democracy, international solidarity and citizens’ participation. This fund will enable ALDA to create networks with new partners at local level but also throughout France, but also to implement several innovative actions over the next three years.
