Together, during a period of enlargement of 50 years, they have built a zone of stability, democracy and sustainable development whilst maintaining cultural diversity, tolerance and individual freedoms.
The European Union is committed to sharing its achievements and its values with countries and peoples beyond its borders.
The European Union is a major player in international cooperation and development aid. It is also the world’s largest humanitarian aid donor. The primary aim of the EU’s own development policy, agreed in November 2000, is the eradication of poverty.

Al Kamandjati

Al Kamandjâti Association (AK) was created in October 2002 by Ramzi Aburedwan, a Palestinian violist from the Al Amari refugee camp, Ramallah.  Al Kamandjati aims to support the education and schooling of Palestinian children by making music more accessible to them, especially those living in refugee camps and villages throughout Palestine and Lebanon. This project encourages them to make music and thus transcend the daily hardships due to the Israeli military occupation. –
