Amici per il Centrafrica Onlus is a non-religious association created in 2001 for proactive participation in helping people who live in poverty. This nonprofit organization helps the people of the Central African Republic, especially those experiencing greatest hardship in Sub-Saharan Africa. It offers them instruction, healthcare and training for employment so that they might become fully self-sufficient.
The association is made up of volunteers who help both in Italy and Africa. It receives funding from various sources, including individuals, private businesses, banks, foundations, public bodies and schools. It believes that the improvement in living conditions of people all over the world is everyone's responsibility.
Growth and lifting the limits of development are stimulated through educating people and raising awareness about existing opportunities. Healthcare emergencies, widespread poverty due to political, social and structural instability, and the lack of attention toward defending minorities all impair the people of Central African countries in building solid bases for planning their future.
