Who we are

 

The aim of the eu can aid! Association is to awaken, foster and make manifest in the form of tangible action the solidarity of the staff of the Institutions of the European Union with people suffering as a result of the imbalance between the rich and the poor countries. The Association calls on the generosity of the staff through members' subscriptions and occasional donations from their colleagues in order to finance micro-projects in the countries of the South. These micro-projects enable local communities to take charge of their own development by improving their living conditions, both sustainably and with respect for the environment. Today, eu can aid! has around 600 members and at least the same number of occasional donors, mainly belonging to the staff of the European Institutions. Since its creation in 1968, eu can aid! has supported over 800 projects in more than 65 countries, covering fields as diverse as agriculture, food, trade in goods and services, micro-credit, professional and vocational training and, generally speaking, the improvement of living conditions. eu can aid! keeps a close eye on where its funds go and ensures the follow-up of projects financed. Thanks to the voluntary work of its members and the logistical support it receives from the European Institutions, eu can aid! manages to keep its administrative costs down to roughly 1% of its annual budget.
