Recognizing the interdependence of all men and women on our planet with finite resources, we bet on the possibility of a just and united world. Each generation, in a perspective of peace must be assured of respect for their fundamental human rights, civil and political, economic, social, cultural and environmental. For us, international solidarity can not be limited to acts and off donations and emergency. It is therefore beyond our respective investments, to seek, to experiment, to publicize alternatives to the dominant system resulting in an increase in social inequalities, cultural uniformity and violence in international relations. It is therefore urgent to make the choice of sustainable development through a more equitable redistribution of wealth, the participation of each and everyone in decision making and management of resources and ecosystems. The initiative lies with people, here and there, to which shall be provided the opportunity to organize freely and independently so that they are actors in their own development. We work together in a spirit of partnership.

Illegal immigration is linked to the fact that men and women, driven initially by wars, climate change and poverty seek to protect their children and to build a future mainly in Europe. This dangerous illusion comes at the cost of thousands of lives lost on the roads of exile, at sea and on the roads. Those who manage to reach Europe live in very difficult conditions, see inhumane in makeshift camps, roadsides and in hiding.

Arrived in Europe, these populations are hate speech and stigma and their "illegal arrival" is further amplified and considered the main source of the "crises" related to unemployment, crime and terrorism.

The Association Association Europe Africa Adviser - AEA - is governed by the law of 1901 and its actions are oriented towards migrants. Its activities focus on the scope of European territory and in the countries of origin in West Africa.

Many organizations are trying to provide solutions to migrants but few would act on the awareness and education of migrants and young Africans trying to cross the Sahara and the Mediterranean to reach Europe. By implementing an accessible tool anywhere, AEA offers an innovation in supporting public policies in the fight against illegal immigration. The aim is to act on three axes:

  • - Provide illegal immigrants with useful information to find solutions to their daily challenges;
  • - Supporting voluntary return and reintegration through the establishment of information on aid and opportunities of host and origin countries.
  • - Making young people in the countries of origin of the difficulties experienced by those parties in Europe and enable them to develop and contribute to their local communities.
  • - Ensure communication of information for migrants

The Association aims to educate young Africans about the dangers of illegal migration and the difficulties faced by migrants in Europe. It is also to advise and mentor those who emigrated illegally in Europe and wants to return to their country of origin. The aim is to help them develop viable economic activities. The association aims to guide migrants in their efforts to promote their return to their country of origin by a support in mounting projects and their financing. It also aims to raise awareness of young people of migrant sending countries and informing the public of West Africa on the situation of migrants in France. AEA Association is working with the communities of origin that are very active in the socio-economic development of their land and government services in countries of origin, specialized in the financing of their diaspora.

The association has multidisciplinary volunteers offering a listening, understanding, tolerance and respect, support.

The commitment of members allows to provide each migrant coaching and specifically tailored advice. The advice and support provided to migrants result in an individualized and personalized care. To carry out its mission, the Association relies daily on the skills and commitment of all its members. To best meet the needs of migrants and to optimize ceaselessly his professional intervention quality, the Association relies on administrators and asset and volunteers volunteers. Recognizing these challenges, the AEA Association put on its members, developing their skills through a training policy and seeks to forge an identity and common values. This allows it to be better equipped to deal with situations of change and necessary

adaptations that result. The human factor is essential. It was on him rests the commitment to our targets.
