In December 2001, Ameropa formalised its philanthropic activities and founded The Ameropa Foundation. The Foundation supports humanitarian, educational and agricultural projects mainly in developing countries. All projects are structured and managed by the Foundation directly, but implemented by local employees or local partners. The Foundation engages in a long standing commitment with its partners. We do not believe that a real change can happen quickly, in the contrary, our commitment is based on a long term strategy.
