Our story begins in Brazil, where we witnessed the first cases of poverty that pushed us to intervene. Our commitment and our involvement in the country was so deep that the name Aleimar was choses in memory of one of the first children we helped, who tragically lost his life in a clash with the local police.
Here are some of the milestones of our story, which lasts from more than 30 years.
A group is formed to support people in need in Brazil, without any specific projects but by organizing fundraisers and events.
The group gives itself a structure and headquarters, developing some multi-year projects to carry out in Brazil and the Philippines.
The group becomes an officially registered non-profit. The first support programs are launched, with projects in Congo, Benin, Palestine, Colombia and Croatia.
The first missions are launched in India, Kenya and Zambia.
Aleimar begins to collaborate with other non-profits. The Tuendelee Foundation is born in Italy to help struggling mothers and children.
Aleimar ONG is founded in Benin, and the organization becomes part of the FORUM SAD.
The first projects are launched in Lebanon and Eritrea.
Aleimar becomes member of the Italian Institute for Donation (Istituto Italiano della Donazione).
Missions are begun in Malawi.
Audirevi, an external audit company, audits the financial statements.
New projects are launched in Ghana, Ethiopia and Kenya.
