CEDE Aruba promotes bringing together people and resources for sustainable development.

In the fight against the socioeconomic and social problems in Aruba, we bring the target groups into contact with each other that can strengthen each other and whenever there is an opportunity for social and educational development. We contribute to a community where people of all ages and backgrounds can develop themselves.

We believe that sustainable development in the Aruban community is feasible.

Objectives of CEDE Aruba

How do we do this?

  • By providing funds.
  • Both directly by CEDE Aruba itself and indirectly by acting as an intermediary for other funds, particularly the Cooperating Funds Caribbean Part of the Kingdom.
