The Origin of AEA

In 1980, a young man Mr. Pierre Bernard Le Bas traveled from France to India for an internship. Seeing the strong contrast between the prosperity and the slums, he started thinking about the problems brought by developments. In February 1981, he founded Aide et Action in France, embarked upon an educational project and raised funds for the poorly-equipped schools in southern India. 

“Aide et Action”, as known as AEA, means “aid and action”. In the past 30 years, we have been dedicated to providing education for people who are marginalized because of poverty, races, genders, disabilities, etc.
