The progressive abandonment of the countryside as a result of environmental crises and the indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources make the effects of poverty and social degradation even more serious pulverizing cultures and rural traditions.For over 40 years ACRA contributes to the welfare of rural populations in North and South of the world by working with associations, institutions and local communities who are facing the problems of poverty every day.
These associations are very familiar with the problems and also know the best way to solve them but they need funding, skills and strength to resist adverse conditions in which they live and to reaffirm basic human rights: Food Sovereignty, access to water, education, economic initiative, health and environmental protection.Why do we ask your help?
ACRA interventions are mostly integrated interventions, real development programs that incorporate different objectives articulated in order to ensure long-term results. For this reasons, they are generally very expensive.Most of the money necessary to fund these programs are donated by major national and international institutions, which cover an average of 60-70% of total costs; the remaining 30-40% must be funded with other sources: this is why we need your contribution to cover the missing funding.
Together we have done so much, together we can do something more...
You can trust ACRA!
ACRA has a history of over 40 years and is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European Union. An external audit company approves ACRA annual report: in 2009, only 8, 6% of the budget was intended to cover the HQ costs.
Today - thanks to the contributions of thousands of supporters and volunteers - ACRA carries out projects that benefit more than 250 thousand people and their families in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
You can donate to ACRA with confidence: ACRA complys with the principles enshrined in the Carta della Donazione (Charter of Donations) published in 1999 by the National Forum of the Third Sector, the Fondazione Sodalitas and the Summit della Solidarietà. The Carta della Donazione is the first Italian code of self-regulation for the collection and use of funds in the nonprofit sector.
When acceding to the Carta, nonprofit organizations such as ACRA commit themselves to ensure to donors and recipients of their social activities a series of rights and also assume behavioral responsibility for ethical and organizational excellence.
