The Association Solidarité Afrique was created in 1992 by educators from the specialized prevention service of the Sauvegarde 69 in the Lyon area. Initially created with the objective of putting young unemployed people in the communes of eastern Lyon back into a social and professional dynamic via the lever of solidarity, Solidarité Afrique has evolved at the local and international levels and has broadened its public and its partners. Solidarité Afrique also coordinates cooperation projects, notably in Côte d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso. The association has over 20 years of experience in development projects in sub-Saharan Africa.

Solidarité Afrique defends social, intercultural and intergenerational diversity at the heart of its actions and has set itself the following missions

To mobilize young people aged 16 to 25 in the Lyon Metropolis on eco-citizenship and local and international solidarity actions;
To transmit to the young public the notions of mutual aid, commitment and sustainable development;
To enhance their skills and their ability to act on their environment;
Promote the social inclusion of young people with the least opportunities.

Its objectives are:
To open the field of possibilities for youth with fewer opportunities - JAMO - and to promote their social inclusion;
Contribute to their development and integration into society through projects that promote learning about citizenship and empowerment;
Use the major global issues as levers for remobilization and success (ODD);
To make young people actors of solidarity and vectors of responsible consumption.

Therefore, we work with the youth structures of the Metropolis - social centers, schools, MJC, educational services - and welcome a young public, from 12 to 25 years old, who will act and work for a more united world within a collective of employees, volunteers and volunteers.
