Citizenship and associative life : guidance and push for projects

A center of resources for the youth and their associations
AMSED’s activities rest with the value of exchanges and of sharing. We organize projects that create friendships among the youth. These projects come in the form of international construction and re-building projects (Morocco, Algeria, Togo, India, Nepal, Burkina Faso…) and intercultural exchanges (Germany, Romania, Turkey…) to allow young people to discover themselves and exchanges cultures with one another.
Cooperation for the Development
AMSED initiated an educational project of stakeholders of associations as well as participants of local Algerian development (artisans, livestock farmers, jewelry fabricators…) Currently in action is a textile recycling project fabricated by women who are modestly qualified in terms of formal education—this project takes place in Kabylia.
Thanks to neighborhood participants and close and socially interactive involvement, AMSED relies on local support (the duty of a public writer, street performances, work sponsors…)
