Mission

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.
