‘Setting up Aide et Action was a project that was certainly crazy at the start, but which took shape little by little since the beginning of the year and which has now become a very concrete reality thanks to all of you’. These were the first words in the editorial by Pierre-Bernard Le Bas, founder of Aide et Action, in September 1981 in the zero issue of this Magazine.
What a road we have travelled since!
As we celebrate 40 years of Aide et Action, we would first of all like to thank our supporters, partners, volunteers, staff, and project participants for such unwavering support, without which nothing would have been posIsible. This commitment to us has enabled us to become increasingly ambitious and to strengthen our impact at all levels, both in terms of number of countries of intervention and the number of people we support. Together, we have accompanied millions of children, youth, and adults on the path to development across Africa, Asia, and Europe.
By improving access to and quality of education, we enable a better future for vulnerable and marginalized populations who are victims of injustice and inequalities. This fight has had its share of progress and victories, and we are very proud to lead it thanks to you. Together, let us continue to defend our beliefs which position education as the start to everything
