How can you contribute to the Network in your country?: 

Arrabal-AID will be able to strengthen the Spanish network and collaborate with other partners in future actions, in order to achieve ALF common goals.

Moreover, we can share our past experiences and contacts in the Andalusia Region, in purpose to give the opportunity to implement projects jointly and increase local and regional impact of the actions.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?: 

We are strongly motivated to join the ALF network. In fact, we believe our action corresponds and goes in the same direction of ALF and AIMed mission.
