Who we are:
Advanced Integral Development (AID) is a small group of committed graduates and volunteers developing a UK based civil society not for profit organisation. Supporting national and international social movements, charities and professional organisations our primary aim is to raise awareness and inform European citizens on the struggle against transnational organised crime. Our methods support those organisations working toward this common goal.
At present operating as a ‘not for profit’ civil society organisation, we may consider the application of charitable status as the organisation develops.
We are a catalyst for relieving the suffering in disaster stricken areas around the planet. We achieve this by fostering links and sharing information and expertise in order to facilitate a fuller understanding of the complexities of society in emergency and disaster potential environments. Supporting organisations that are integral to the growth of society
We maintain an unbiased approach to our work and support an impartiality ethic politically and religiously.
Our Mission 'Governance for All' is a vision embedded within International Human Rights Law. Seeking to support all people discounting none to have that which many people in the developed world take for granted: - security, health, work, income, food, clean water and shelter. Until people can live in safety and peace there can be no ‘Human Security’.
In order to support the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) our agenda is to work with partners to achieve our mission and attempt to support those people who are unfortunate enough to not be able to help themselves. This will be achieved through planning to develop sustainable activities and behaviour to empower personal and community growth and defence.
We are a cooperative of likeminded individuals whose base is in Leicester. Our concerns include Humanitarian action, Civil Society, Justice and governance for all. As consultants we operate where needed to facilitate understanding of the complexities of society and assist in the advancement of Integral Development.
We will work closely with partner organisations, NGO's and not for profit organisations to facilitate clearer goals and understanding of the role of the organisation in humanitarian affairs.
· Working as Consultants we anticipate generating stronger links with UK based Charities and Government organisations to facilitate a greater understanding of human security and development, change and issues surrounding trust within society.
· Our primary goals at the present time is to increase our visibility and raise funds, attempt to achieve charitable status, raise awareness and generate activities to support income generation so that our mission can be achieved.
· Make efforts to develop links with local community organisations within the UK to support and facilitate British Citizens who have difficulties finding work: (IT training, CV preparation, letter writing, motivation, use of SWAT analysis and SMART action planning techniques, First Aid training).
· Develop proposals for societal research projects.
· We will continue to develop plans and research potential for increasing the quality and availability of the water supply in Freetown, Sierra Leone: (plans for protecting wells, construction of gravity fed water towers and support for the development of dam construction).
· Working as Consultants we hope to generate stronger links with the Homes for Heroes Charity (homesforheroes.co.uk), and be able to offer support to ex service men and women. Additionally to support the awareness of Addio Pizzo and Addio Pizzo Travel (www.addiopizzo.org) & (www.addiopizzotravel.it), to educate the population of the UK about transnational organised crime and the protection racket.
Our values are based on our beliefs, we believe that if every member of a society contributes a little, they can achieve a great deal. Everybody has a right to Aid in the true sense of the word. Conflict, insecurity, crime and natural disasters make people more vulnerable, much of this suffering is unnecessary and can be relieved, we believe that every individual has the ability and therefore should carry the responsibility of supporting those who lack the ability to help themselves.
The World Bank defines Governance as “The traditions and institutions by which authority in a country is exercised”. In July 2009 In its Guide to ‘Assessing Local Governance’ the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) explain “Governance is much more than government or ‘good government’ and shapes the way a service or set of services are planned, managed and regulated within a set of political social and economic systems”.
Our Mission 'Governance For All' is a vision embedded within International Human Rights Law. Seeking to support all people discounting none to have that which many people in the developed world take for granted: - security, health, work, income, food, clean water and shelter. Until people can live in safety and peace there can be no ‘Human Security’.
Through income generation activities found in the ‘what we do’ page, and grant acquisition we aim to develop plans to facilitate the 'community' ethic and increase access to safe clean drinking water globally.
Current projects include:
We are currently researching and developing projects to conduct qualitative research on societal and community needs.
A key active subject for our current research is based on the last six months in Sicily. Recently we began researching the Anti-mafia phenomenon which has been a plague for the citizens of Sicily for many years, we started our research here because as the genesis of the Mafia Phenomenon Sicily seems the most logical place. The issue of extortion and the protection racket is a growing concern for many of the citizens of the capital, Palermo.
The issue of transnational organised crime remain high on our agenda for research also.
