What Aleimar does

Aleimar organizes both sponsorship of children and development projects to help the families or local communities of the sponsored children.

Methodology

Aleimar works with a net of local associations, thus understanding and attending to the real needs of the local population. At least once a year, the Head of each project travels to the community supported to verify an appropriate use of the funds and to follow economic and logistics matters.

Minimum overhead costs

To contain overhead costs, which take a toll on the precious contributions of the volunteers, a threshold is set at 11% of the total financial availability.

Management of funds

Support and help, rather than cash money, is given to the children and their families. The funds given to local associations are granted to those in charge, who are held responsible to keeping track and justifying the uses of the funds.

Transparency

Aleimar is committed to managing the donated funds efficiently, reporting to all donors, institutional and private alike, according to the guidelines of the Italian Donation Institute (Istituto Italiano della Donazione – IID). The Financial Statements are public and can be viewed at any time.

Our Areas of Intervention:

Child Protection

We support children in families, both adoptive and natural, in family homes and accommodation centers. Our goal is to guarantee the rights to a home, to play and to education and identity.

Health and Nutrition

We favor prevention and education campaigns and we are active with targeted interventions such as vaccinations and medicine distribution to curtail deadly diseases such as HIV, Malaria, Tuberculosis, Leprosy, etc. We also support nutrition and medical centers for undernourished children. We finance services for the promotion of the fundamental hygiene practices and correct nutrition habits, with the end goal of defeating malnutrition and infant mortality.

Education and Training

We operate to guarantee an adequate education to children from underprivileged families or children with disabilities by building, managing or co-sponsoring schools. We support the continuation of the studies of deserving students through scholarships for universities and professional studies.

Women’s Empowerment

We support projects for the training and education of women, to encourage work as a tool for social acceptance and financial independence.

Environment and Development

We promote farming and breeding activities, which include production coops, micro-loans for entrepreneurial start-ups and projects for the improvement of the environment in which families and communities live. The end goal is to set these supported communities on the path for self-sustainability. We support the installation of photovoltaic panels for the generation of electric energy.

We operate in 11 countries with about 70 projects.
