- Offer economic, cultural, social, educational, environmental, health and humanitarian assistance to ethnic or social groups who request it in any part of the world.
- Offer cultural, social or economic assistance to the exiled or immigrants resident in Spain.
- Any other objectives in the interest of peace and co-operation between nations.
- To promote sociocultural programmes which have the aim of increasing equality between men and women, as well as fomenting the active presence of young people, through specific programmes.
- To promote active social participation via fostering programmes and training of volunteers.

Main Projects / Activities: 

The activities of ACPP are canalized into 4 main dimensions: Development projects in developing countries in Latin America, the Magreb, and the Middles East; Awareness raising; Education for values such solidarity, peace, tolerance, combating racism and xenophobia and promoting the awareness and the implementation for human rights in the European society; and support to immigrants and promotion of codevelopment.
During the last six years, ACPP has kept its original line of action, through expanding its development cooperation projects’ activities to new developing countries. At the same time, ACPP has expanded its raising awareness projects; its implementation of programs in primary schools and secondary schools, while developing programs to foster voluntary enlisting; and stimulating the active participation of citizens in the Spanish society.
We work in five geographic areas: West Africa, Caribbean, Central America, Mediterranean Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.
